Description

She was in our living rooms every week for a decade, but Eric Weinrib’s fly-on-the-wall documentary reveals a side of Emmy-winner Roseanne Barr we never saw—Roseanne as presidential nominee. In 2012, the woman once publicly scorned for making a mockery of the national anthem turned heads when she set out to make a difference by running for president as a third party candidate. As someone who changed the way America talked about class, family, homosexuality, and abortion with her groundbreaking sitcom, it should come as no surprise that she would use her larger-than-life personality to call attention to the things that angered her about the state of the nation. Doubling as an entertaining and insightful political profile and a vérité look at her life and career, this candid, no-holds-barred portrait of a woman who is never afraid to speak her mind is one of the funniest and best of the fest. In Person: Director Eric Weinrib.
