From  Manohla Dargis'  NYTimes review March 27, 2014: 

An exciting electric current of discovery runs through Finding Vivian Maier, a documentary about a street photographer who never exhibited her work. She scarcely shared it even with those who knew her. Then again, many of her acquaintances when she was taking some of her remarkable images, particularly in and around Chicago in the 1950s and ’60s, were the children she cared for while working as a nanny. Later in her life, some of those children took care of her in turn, first by moving her into an apartment and then the nursing home where she died in 2009. What rotten timing: She was on the verge of being discovered, first as a curiosity and then as a social-media sensation and a mystery. 

Important note:  We have become aware that some of our attendees have serious reactions to perfumes and popcorn - yes, popcorn. We ask all attendees to respect these issues and leave perfumes and popcorn at home. We have limited seating, so for your comfort, please RSVP to Mary.

If you are interested in bringing a snack to share with others, feel free to do so. Thank you.
