I went to see this just yesterday, a week after Toni Morrison passed away. I was moved to tears. What a wonderful tribute and how fortunate we are that this film was done before her death. It's a really well done look at her life and work. I found the interviews with other people quite moving and informative and the chance to hear her talk about her work was truly awesome. I can only imagine what a great professor she must have been. I already was planning to reread some or all of her work. This film definitely cemented that decision. If you have any interest at all in American Literature this film is a must see.
