It seems the highlight of this film festival is the documentaries.  Iris is lets us meet 90 year old Iris Apfel, who has become a celebrity due to her unique fashion sense, particularly her addiction to wearing bold accessories.  This has resulted in museum shows, front pages of fashion magazines, articles, interviews, a movie and her own range of accessories selling out on the home shopping network.  With her trademark round circular glasses, an armful of bangles and bold designer clothing she is certainly no shy wallflower, but somehow I sensed a sadness, a little old lady who after rushing around from job to show, seemed tired and over it.

A fascinating watch - I think the whole audience enjoyed it immensely.  4/5
