Great Movie Wednesday – Obit

GREAT MOVIE WEDNESDAY, September 20 – OBIT
A fascinating and lively look at the inner workings of the team responsible for The New York Times’ obituary section, Obit chronicles the ways in which life, death, and the written word intersect to create personal and public legacies that resonate long after our time is up.
Engaging, lively, and warmly funny, Obit proves to be an unexpectedly vibrant celebra-tion of life.
“At The New York Times, the obituary beat is no career dead-end. Editor William McDonald gets to weigh the desires of writers like Bruce Weber and Paul Vitello, who seem often to fall in love with these people they’ll never meet. Those writers make for a fun company here, however much they claim people avoid them at cocktail parties.” – John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter
