"Anne Lamott is a cause for celebration."
- The New Yorker

"An engaging profile of author and writing instructor Anne Lamott."
– Kathleen Craughwell, Los Angeles Times
More Rave Reviews
The film, a year in the life of the writer, focuses on her gift at demystifying the creative process, the people who inform her life and writing, and the beauty of language and the written arts. It touches upon concerns of universal interest - loss, alienation, loneliness, faith, and the meaning of life and the perhaps less weighty concerns of unfirm thighs, difficult hair, and retail therapy. Annie likes to pass on the "secret of life" that she found written on a computer terminal bearing a picture of Koko the gorilla: "The law of the American jungle: Remain calm and share your bananas."
