Storyline

IRIS pairs the 87-year-old Maysles with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity and how, even at Iris' advanced age, a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. IRIS portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, art and people are life's sustenance and reminds us that dressing, and indeed life, is nothing but an experiment. Despite the abundance of glamour in her current life, she continues to embrace the values and work ethic established during a middle-class Queens upbringing during the Great Depression. I feel lucky to be working. If you're lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows. Written by Anonymous

Iris and Carl Really Know How to Live
4 January 2016 | by Cassandra BautistaSee all my reviews

Iris amazes me with her wonderful taste in fashion. I also love her fashionably dressed and encouraging husband. Their relationship together is one that most probably can only wish for. I loved this film because I've never seen such a fashionable couple in their 90's. Plus I love ethnic clothes and brightly colored fabrics intertwined to create masterpieces of art. This film inspired me to pursue even more creative endeavors, to go out and explore the world, and to live life with more fun in it. So happy to see a film where older people are enjoying life and are lively.I Love how Iris and Carl's home is like a museum with so many unique artifacts.More films should definitely explore older people's lives because their stories are so interesting and have many lessons in them. Iris and her husband's style in clothing to me looks better than most people younger than me or even the same age. Their life is full of pizazz and it shows in their home, clothing, and personality. This film should be shown to all ages because it is a demonstration of how youth and elders can actually get along. It is a bridge between many generations.
