Iris is a pure delight. Renowned cinematographer and director Albert Maysles—best known for his documentaries Grey Gardens (1975) and Gimme Shelter (1970)—tenderly gives his audience a heart-warming snapshot of the 90-something New York fashion icon Iris Apfel. Though void of any thesis, Iris is an ode to the wisdom, wit, and love that comes with experience and confidence. The tiny woman adorned in flamboyant patterns, costume jewelry, and oversized glasses proves that age is no barrier to a vibrant life.
