QUICK TAKE

Toni Morrison 

 

In pieces: "Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am," a new documentary about the acclaimed author and Lorain native opens Friday at the Cedar Lee Theatre.

Award-winner: The film also screened in April as part of the Cleveland International Film Festival where it won the Local Heroes Competition. In addition to Morrison, 88, who has won the Pulitzer and Nobel prizes, those interviewed include Oprah Winfrey and Angela Davis.

Evocative sketches: Directed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, the film "does not look back on her life in a stereotypical way," wrote Alan Zilberman in The Washington Post. The film is structured "the way Morrison structures her novels: as a series of evocative sketches, jumping forward and backward in time, until they create a complete emotional arc."
