Directed by Academy award-winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese, Public Speaking brilliantly captures Lebowitz's experiences and sardonic world view.
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. Directed in
the inimitable and energetic style of Martin Scorsese's early documentaries, 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 gender, race and gay rights, as well as
her pet peeves, including celebrity culture, smoking bans, tourists and strollers. Of her
beloved city, she says, "New York was not better [in the '70s] because there was more crime.
It was better because it was cheaper." USA, 2010, 82 min, color, DigiBeta
