With trademark razor-sharp wit, national political columnist and media firebrand Molly Ivins spoke truth to power and took on corruption within the political establishment wherever she uncovered it. The outspoken journalist and native Texan found joy in reporting as one of the lone liberals in her deep-red state, even as she feared that partisan plague would be the death of American democracy. Her uncompromising reporting, ample humor, and prescient observations left both sides of the aisle laughing and craving ink in her columns. Filmmaker Janice Engel crafts a highly entertaining watch that radiantly brings Ivins’s repartee and political wisdom back to life. Her messaging and brand of commentary strikes a particular chord in today’s hostile political climate. Director: Janice Engel (US 2018) 91 min.
