A documentary that's admirably frank about the difficulties of insightfully portraying such a widely lauded - and subtly cagey and habitually self-effacing - figure.

In sharing her subject's life achievements, [Ms. Lee] raises meaningful questions and keeps them profitably open.

Lee's movie is the most fun you'll ever have in a history lesson.

Follows the rich life of a woman more than deserving of documentary attention, but it does so in a completely standard, no-frills manner.
