Gorgeous Film
7 December 2018 | by pamelanewtonSee all my reviews

This documentary is about so many things--theatre, New York City, Cuba, friendship, aging, art--but it is really about LIFE. It is beautifully shot and edited and becomes a kind of visual poem, but without ever flagging or slowing down. Irene Fornes, the subject of the film, is endlessly entertaining and inspiring and painfully, beautifully human. I highly recommend you see this film if you get a chance!
