“As journalism comes under attack with constant cries of “fake news,” this hugely entertaining documentary about the fierce and fearless writer and social commentator Molly Ivins reminds us of how wit and well-channeled vitriol can speak truth to power.
Born into a wealthy Texas family and possessed of a razor-sharp pen, Ivins refused to conform to the restrictive Southern belle stereotypes and challenged the stuffy white boys’ club that defined journalism in the ’60s and ’70s. Filmmaker Janice Engel’s feature debut skillfully captures the intelligence, humor, and indefatigable spirit of a true pioneer. (Dir. by Janice Engel, 2019, USA, 93 mins., Not Rated)”
