Storyline

This film traces the artistic self-realization of Annie Leibovitz, from childhood through the death of her beloved friend, Susan Sontag, and includes snippets of Leibovitz's last visual memories of Sontag. The film traces the arc of her photographic life, her aspirations to artistry, and the trajectory of her career through phases that included the tumultuous sixties in Berkeley, CA., touring with the Rolling Stones, a mentorship by Hunter S. Thompson, and, later, capturing the last candid moments of John Lennon's life with Yoko Ono. It closes with her reflections on life, children, and the the wake of her relationship with Sontag. The archival material presented here is invaluable for framing an understanding of this immeasurably influential visual artist.

I've never seen a movie with a more obnoxious introduction. The film got slightly better after that, but not by much. Her life story was marginally interesting, before devolving into bland celebrity worship. One interviewee comments (paraphrasing) 'how some of the greatest works of all time were commissioned works (by the Medici)' I'm sorry but to Whoopi Goldberg in a tub full of milk to works by Botticelli, Michelangelo and Da Vinci insults my conscience.
