I saw this movie in class and I must say that I didn't like it at all. Sure, it's a nice idea, but in the end it just seemed like an actress desperately trying to showcase her talent... or lack there of. Maybe this is supposed to only be seen on stage, but on the screen it's obnoxious. She exaggerates the mannerisms of the people she depicts. Frankly, if I was the one depicted I would be insulted. She exaggerates accents, gestures, and it's full of bad make up jobs. Also, I highly doubt that every single one of these people she talked to ate with their mouth open. It was hard to sit and watch the entire thing, the most interesting parts were the photographs and the stock footage. Which just indicates to me, that this would have been a much better film if it had been done in a more traditional documentary format (with the actual interviewed people talking).
