Documentary directed by Stig Björkman. Sweden, 2021, 1 hr. 34 min.
Popular but enigmatic, Joyce Carol Oates is one of the most prolific, celebrated, and bestselling American authors. A number of her works have also traveled to the screen—the film adaptation of her novel about Marilyn Monroe, Blonde, premiered at the Venice Film Festival—but this is the first feature-length documentary about Oates herself.
Exhaustively researched and featuring readings by actor Laura Dern — who starred in a film based on an Oates short story — it offers an unprecedented glimpse into the now 84-year old writer’s solitude and takes us back to her childhood and university years, to societal events that affected her deeply and are evident in her writing.
