Docs: Lady Boss: The Story of Jackie Collins (2021)

Queen of trash? Feminist writer? Powerful emissary of women’s secret sexual desires? Gay icon? Insightful, affectionate, none too critical, Laura Fairrie's new documentary about the life of novelist Jackie Collins, aptly titled Lady Boss, aims to reveal the “real” woman behind and beyond the exterior veneer. Over a period of four decades, Jackie Collins, who was born in London in 1937, produced 32 novels, all of which appeared on the New York Times bestseller list.
