Public Speaking

Wise, brilliant, and funny, Fran Lebowitz hit the New York literary scene in the early '70s when Andy Warhol hired the unknown scribe to write a column for Interview magazine. Today, she's an acclaimed author with legions of fans who adore her acerbic wit. Public Speaking captures the author in conversation at New York's Waverly Inn, in an onstage discussion with longtime friend and celebrated writer Toni Morrison, and on the streets of New York City. Lebowitz offers insights on timely issues such as art, gender, race, and gay rights, as well as her pet peeves, including celebrity culture, smoking bans, tourists, and strollers.

Directed by Oscar winner Martin Scorsese (in the inimitable and energetic style of his early documentaries Italianamerican and American Boy), this feature-length documentary spotlights Lebowitz's experiences and sardonic worldview.
