STARRING Joan Rivers, Melissa Rivers
DIRECTED BY Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg

A hit at Sundance this year, the doc follows the gloriously brash comic Joan Rivers over an eventful year in her career, including her one-woman show in London and her infamous stint on The Celebrity Apprentice. Surprisingly, it’s the first time Rivers has had cameras document her life this intimately. ”I’ve had Biography do my bio,” she says, ”but that’s all about getting people to say you’re wonderful, so that doesn’t count.”
