    Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg's documentary "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work" has been very well received here at Sundance. The film presents a sharp, funny and often quite touching portrait of Rivers, who at age 75, still struggles with both her insecurities and her ability to find steady work.

Following a standing ovation, she spent nearly 20 minutes responding to a slew of compliments and questions, putting the audience in hysterics a good two dozen times. The entire Q&A is available here, but indieWIRE has also...

His reference came from the fact that reps from essentially every distributor were in attendance, anticipating the last minute entry to the fest and one of its hottest acquisition titles.
