About the film

Pauline Kael was likely the most powerful, and personal, movie critic of the 20th Century. Writing for the New Yorker and publishing a dozen bestselling books, she ruthlessly pursued what made a movie or an actor’s performance work — or not — and why. Her passion made her both admired and despised among readers. This film pursues the question of what made Kael’s work so influential. Michigan premiere.
