Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work
Saturday, March 19, 7 pm
“Rivers was more than a pioneering funny lady who paved the way for Kathy Griffin and Sarah Silverman. Her wit cut as sharp as one of her diamonds, her observations as acute and timely as those of Jon Stewart and Sacha Baron Cohen. Rivers’ renegade spirit animates this movie. There’s not a timid, sympathy-begging minute in it. Even better, you leave Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work with the exhilarating feeling that the lady was just hitting her stride.” Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
The movie, directed by Ricki Stern and Anne Sundberg, was named one of the Top 5 Documentaries of 2010 by the National Board of Review.
Laurie Baron will introduce the film and lead a discussion of it after the screening.
