WHAT SHE SAID: THE ART OF PAULINE KAEL

Dir: Rob Garver
United States / 2018 / 96mins

It’s near impossible to build a career as a female film journalist, but Pauline Kael defied the odds.

What She Said tells the story of Pauline Kael, longtime New Yorker film critic and best-selling author, and her battle to make a name for herself. Never a dull read, Kael was also a force to be reckoned with.

With her letters, interviews and published work narrated by Sarah Jessica Parker and late-20th-century movies reframed through Kael’s lens, the controversial yet pioneering critic is brought into focus.

Featuring new interviews with figures including Francis Ford Coppola, Paul Shrader and Molly Haskell, and never-before-seen archive footage, What She Said shows her modest beginnings, how her unique voice was forged, her relationships with filmmakers, and her substantial impact – proof that some critics can indeed make or break a movie.
