Wonderful Work, Fascinating Woman
16 January 2007 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

At first I was put off by the seen-too-much-of-it cutesy animation, but it WAS suited to the subject, and before I could chill utterly, I fell in love with Florence Broadhurst. The story was nicely set-up, It had a nice structure, and it had some drama which helped it work, but it was the people interviewed that captivated along with the few actual shots of Broadhurst and the charismatic sound of her rather amazing VOICE, the quotes from letters: all those things were laid out with tremendous charm. I loved The Ladies of the Black & White ball with their clothes and furniture and hairdos and grudging admiration, AND the employees of the company with their affection and humor, and then all the work she FINALLY did, the artistry and craftsmanship she had in her all along. Tremendously satisfying film.
