With unprecedented access to the Mary Tyler Moore Estate, friends, family, and colleagues, Being Mary Tyler Moore constructs an intimate mosaic of Mary's sixty-year career in show business and is a must-see for Minnesotans and fans of the long-running TV show.

From her start on The Dick Van Dyke Show to her groundbreaking, feminist The Mary Tyler Moore Show, to her star-turn in Ordinary People, which resulted in an Oscar nomination, the film reveals a profoundly complex talent who was full of compassion, empathy, and inspirational abilities despite dealing with enormous personal loss and battling inner demons.
