A delightful piece, so worth your time.
25 May 2018 | by SJFlannSee all my reviews

Thank you to Leslie Caron and film makers for this doc. So interesting! I will watch it again with friends. She is one hundred percent a fully realized human being. Not spared the trials of life , she's come through them to possess delightful grace. The visual images and narrative inspire and -like watching all the greats, make me happy to be a female. Go Leslie!
