ABOUT THE FILM

An intimate and nuanced evocation of the life of one of the most influential and provocative thinkers of the 20th century. Passionate and gracefully outspoken throughout her career, Susan Sontag became one of the most important literary, political and feminist icons of her generation. Her life is revisited through her own words, read by Patricia Clarkson, as well as archival interviews and first-hand accounts. From book love to gay love; from her early marriage to her last lover; a fascinating look at a towering cultural critic and writer whose works on photography, war, illness, and terrorism continue to resonate.
