Watch the New Trailer for the Forthcoming Joan Didion Documentary, The Center Will Not Hold

Here’s your first look at the trailer for the recently released
documentary Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold,
billed as the “first and only documentary about
Joan Didion.”

If this looks familiar to you, it’s probably because of this:
director Griffin Dunne (also Didion’s nephew), raised money for this
documentary via Kickstarter back in 2014.

Didion’s life is one that has been marked by great tragedy—the
loss of both her husband, John Dunne and their daughter,
Quintana Roo happened in rapid succession—and those two
tragedies have been what’s defined the second half of her life
for many people. “Grief is the hardest thing to write about,”
intones a man in VO, “and she did it as a reporter.”

This documentary looks like it’ll present a fuller portrait of
the woman whose work, life and packing list has inspired
just about everyone from Céline to lifestyle bloggers to
writers.

Come for the intimate look at Didion’s life and career, and
stay for the sound of Joan Didion’s actual voice and shots of
her standing on a street corner in Manhattan wearing sunglasses
and squinting inscrutably into the distance. It premieres on
Netflix October 27.
