Critics reviews

Mrs. Parker is a film of loose conversational scenes, arranged with a clear order, like chapters in an impressionistic memoir. The result creates an immersive, claustrophobic sense of creative life in the era of the Algonquin Round Table, without losing sight of the artistic and personal frustration underneath its protagonist’s non-stop wisecracks.
