LOVE, ANTOSHA (2019)A Hollywood Suite Exclusive — Friday, November 13, 9:00 pm ET on HS00

Through his journals and other writings, his photography, the original music he wrote, and interviews with his family, friends, and colleagues, this film looks not just at Anton’s impressive career, but at a broader portrait of the man. Born in the former Soviet Union to a family of artists, Anton came to the U.S. with his parents when he was six months old. He started acting at nine. He had a genuine curiosity and love for people, for art, and for family and a willingness to explore, and be open with, the darker parts of himself. Love, Antosha explores his successes and his struggles, and lets viewers get to know this extraordinary person the world was cheated from seeing grow old.
