Patricia just commented (and tweeted teehee) that the Chelsea Theater in Chapel Hill is showing The September Issue!
The showtimes for tonight through Thursday are 7:10PM and 9:00PM.
I saw it on Saturday at Galaxy Cinema with my sister, another avid Anna/Vogue fan, and my mom, who had no idea who Anna was.
Verdict: Six thumbs up.
The documentary gives a rare, if small, glimpse into Anna Wintour’s personal life and character. The first 10 seconds after leaving the theater, I was a little disappointed – I guess I expected the documentary to delve deeper into Anna. But then I realized, if she had openly divulged everything about her, the way she thinks, why she is awesome, etc., she wouldn’t be the cold Anna we know and love. Besides, Grace Coddington, and to a lesser extent, ALT, were such huge presences that getting to know them made up for it. There were tons of little trivia about the issue that gave it new meaning for me – I found myself flipping through it after the documentary, and loving it even more.
