Lady Boss: The Jackie Collins Story (15) 128mins

Screening at Kino Rye and Kino Hawkhurst from the 16th July

Recorded Q&A hosted by Mariella Frostrup, with the Collins Family in attendance and an exclusive Q&A with director Laura Fairrie and writers Yomi Adegoke, Daisy Buchanan and Julie Cohen. 

 

Lady Boss takes us on an immersive journey through the trailblazing life of Jackie Collins. Spinning together fact and fiction, this feature documentary tells the untold story of a ground-breaking author and her mission to build a one-woman literary empire. Narrated by a cast of Jackie’s closest friends and family, the film reveals the private struggles of a woman who became an icon of 1980s feminism whilst hiding her personal vulnerability behind a carefully crafted, powerful, public persona.

A fabulous, hilarious and deeply moving feminist fairy-tale, the film evolves from a celebration of Jackie’s revolutionary novels - which placed female sexuality at the heart of their storytelling - into a multi-layered deliberation on feminism, family dynamics, and the universal quest to understand how our childhood experiences and early traumas ultimately make us who we are.

 

'Some epic themes bubble beneath the surface of this fascinating biographical documentary about the life, work and complex persona of the author Jackie Collins' ★★★★The Times

'The popular, colourful author gets a documentary that’s a real page-turner' Screen Daily
