As you may recall, we recently ran a contest on social media with the prize being two tickets to For the Love of Spock‘s opening night at Old Greenbelt Theatre. Our winner, Don Klees, took his young son with him for the premiere, and they both had a fantastic time!
If you’re a member of the InterventionCon Fans group on Facebook, you can read Don’s thoughts on the film here. If you’re not… well, first off, we’d love to have you join! But we’ve also posted a small piece of it below:
Above all, For the Love of Spock is the story of a life lived fully on and off the screen. By Leonard Nimoy’s own admission, for much of his life, he had “a major in career and a minor in family”, but the film makes it abundantly clear that his devotion to his family was the driver of his focus on that career. This commitment, combined with embodying a character who – despite what many (foolishly) labeled a satanic appearance – represents the better angels of human nature, suggests that posterity will look as favorably on Leonard Nimoy the man as it will on the character of Mister Spock. It’s hard to imagine a better tribute to Star Trek and the hopeful vision it depicts as the series celebrates its 50th birthday.
