Two prototypical New York artists collaborate in Public Speaking (2010), Martin Scorsese's documentary
portrait of acerbic writer and irrepressible conversationalist Fran Lebowitz. She discusses culture, politics, and
decades of New York memories while presiding over her booth in Manhattan's
Waverly Inn. It's kind of a "My Dinner with Marty," and if that's not enough,
she'll throw in an extra two cents' worth, appearing in person for a Q&A
after the screening. Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline | Monday, May 16 @ 7 pm | coolidge.org.
