On Our Radar…Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work

SML Hero Joan Rivers in 1965

We here at SML have a special place in our hearts for the fabulous Joan Rivers. It was after seeing her live show together one night that we sat in a bar and discussed starting a movie review blog together. And here we are! Joan: bringing people together for 40 years. So we are all anxiously awaiting the new documentary about a year in the life of the hardest working woman in show business. The movie was a big hit at Sundance, and there have been some great interviews floating around. A new trailer hit the interwebs this week, hinting that the movie will be as hilarious as we’d expect but also show the softer side of Joan that many people may not be aware of. Take a look!
