    10 Things You Want To Know About Joan Rivers

    Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg's documentary "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work" has been very well received here at Sundance.

"Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work," the new documentary from directorial team Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg, initially deals with that trajectory in visual terms. The comedienne first appears in unflattering close-up, getting mobbed with make-up, l...
