About the Movie
SHE'S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE'S ANGRY is a provocative and rousing look at the birth and legacy of the women's liberation movement in the late 1960s, and a tribute to the outrageous, often brilliant women behind it, taking us from the founding of the National Organization for Women (NOW), when ladies wore hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions such as WITCH (Women’s International Terrorist Conspiracy from Hell!). Using never-before-seen archive footage and directly confronting issues of race, sexual preference and leadership within the movement, this thrilling, scandalous, and frequently hilarious documentary brilliantly captures the spirit of the time and the ongoing struggle for equality.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: As filmmaking, "She's Beautiful" is meat and potatoes: It gets the job done without frills.
Fresh: This history might easily fill out a 12-part miniseries. It's to the credit of "She's Beautiful" that it seems neither hectic nor glib despite the enormous amounts of material that doubtless had to be excluded to fit a single feature's frame.
Fresh: An exceptional chronicle, its mix of archival material and new interviews bristling with the energy and insight of one of the most important social movements of the 20th century.
Fresh: It's rare in today's era of overstuffed nonfiction films that a documentary leaves you wanting more. But that's the case with Mary Dore's cheekily titled She's Beautiful When She's Angry.
