Storyline

Pauline Kael, longtime New Yorker film critic from the 1960s through the early 1990s, and best-selling author, was a lightning rod of American culture. She waged a battle to be recognized and achieve her position, and her strong opinions made her a divisive personality. Her distinctive writing voice pioneered the art form, and was largely a result of stubborn determination, huge confidence, and a deep love of the arts. The movie also shows 20th-century movies through her personal lens, and shows Pauline's life through 20th century movies. The filmmakers had complete access to the subject - through Gina James, Pauline's only child and the executor of her estate; friends and colleagues; and Pauline's personal archives. With over 30 new interviews, including David O. Russell, Quentin Tarantino, Alec Baldwin Greil Marcus, Paul Schrader, David Edelstein, and Joe Morgenstern. Sarah Jessica Parker voices Pauline through her writings and letters.
