Perhaps best known for her widely celebrated book on writing, Bird by Bird, Anne Lamott is one of the rare artists who can teach us not only how to write, but how to live. From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Freida Lee Mock (Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision), BIRD BY BIRD WITH ANNIE offers an intimate portrait of the writer and her craft, interweaving the story of Lamott's life--in itself a deeply moving tale of addiction and redemption, grief and joy, intellect and faith--with a year's worth of interviews, public lectures, and readings, and footage of the writer at work, focusing particularly on Lamott's candid, humorous, and disarmingly straightforward advice on the struggles and joys of writing.

Anne Lamott is so perfect in this as herself. When you see her, even in person, you cannot get close enough to her to actually see every nuance of expression (like you can in her writing) and that frustrates me. But the camera can and does. It captures every sly smile. Every tiny disappointment. Every weird voice high and low she gets into her repertoire as she goes through a typical day looking Anne-like. This is a wonderful film.
