Most lawyers are content to fight their battles far from the public eye. Gloria Allred isn't like most lawyers.
The film allows us, at least to a certain extent, to get behind the public persona to the private person.
As the directors dive into Allred's historical reasoning for holding press conferences, we see a fuller picture of the woman and the necessity for airing grievances in public.
Nobody will confuse Seeing Allred with a hard-hitting expose; rather, this Netflix documentary unabashedly celebrates publicity-savvy attorney/advocate Gloria Allred, shedding some interesting light on her career, even if it's all flattering.
A documentary that's remarkably engaging despite treating its rough-and-tumble hero with kid gloves.
A comprehensive, unabashedly sympathetic portrait of Allred ...
The most striking parts of the movie depict Allred's impeccable, downright admirable composure in every combative situation in which she finds herself-and, as Seeing Allred makes clear, there have been many.
Docu about lawyer for victims of sex crimes, inequity
... helps to understand the importance of the feminist collective that for decades has been fighting for basic rights for women. [Full review in Spanish]
The message behind Allred's oeuvre is clear: Women deserve equal rights under the law, and the media can be a huge tool in getting us there when it's used thoughtfully.
Seeing Allred feels more vital than ever as a microcosm of all of the complexities and contradictions of the current state of feminism in the United States, during a time when forces seem to be conspiring to paint it in large, monochrome brush strokes.
If you think Gloria Allred is a glorified ambulance-chaser, this sharp documentary is an eye-opener.
