This documentary thankfully doesn't get stuck in a plot re-hash of the film. It includes some funny comments from Meryl Streep regarding Dustin Hoffman's antagonism towards her, which Hoffman rationalises as acting out as a consequence of the divorce he was living through when he was offered the role. She also tells an anecdote about Woody Allen directing her in Manhattan which she was also shooting at the same time - "There's a comma in the sentence for a reason". Hoffman's method of improvisation and the boundaries set by director Robert Benton hint at Hoffman's reputation at being "difficult", and it is revealed that he declined Benton's offer for a co-writer screenplay credit, which would have won him another Academy Award. You also get to see the grown-up Justin Henry.
