Description

Born 100 years ago, The New Yorker’s legendary film critic Pauline Kael transformed the trajectory of 20th century cinema with the power of her typewriter. A singular voice amid a male-dominated industry, Kael’s exuberant—yet often divisive—prose helped lift the careers of Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Brian de Palma, and many others. Featuring interviews with Alec Baldwin and Quentin Tarantino—and writings voiced by Sarah Jessica Parker—this exquisitely crafted and entertaining portrait captures the life, work and complexity of one of the greatest film critics who ever lived—and is required viewing for all movie lovers.
