A Piece of Work

Wednesday, June 09, 2010

Comedian and pop icon Joan Rivers and filmmaker Ricki Stern discuss the documentary Joan Rivers - A Piece of Work.

The film exposes the private dramas of Joan Rivers as she fights tooth and nail to keep her American dream alive. It's a funny and brutally honest look at the ruthless entertainment industry, the trappings of success, and the ultimate vulnerability of the first queen of comedy. Joan Rivers - A Piece of Work opens in New York June 11 at  Lincoln Plaza Cinemas, IFC Center, Clearview's Chelsea, and City Cinemas 1, 2, 3.
