Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am

"Reminds us how long she had to wait for the recognition she so richly deserved, and what a distinctive, generous, funny, astute, self-doubting, unstoppable and formidable figure she was along the way." Wall St Journal

Showing Times

This generous, admiring documentary explores the writer's work - perhaps the best known of which are books Beloved, Song of Solomon and The Blue Eye - and it features interviews with Barack Obama, Angela Davis and Oprah Winfrey, among others.

"It’s less a biography than an extended essay, which is entirely a good thing.  If you want a thorough documentation of everything Morrison has done and everyone she knows, there’s always Wikipedia. But if you’d prefer an argument for her importance and a sense of her presence, then you won’t be disappointed."  A O Scott, NY Times
