1990. USA. Written and directed by Yvonne Rainer. With Rainer, Blaire Baron, Novella Nelson. The spectacularly talented Yvonne Rainer began her work as an artist in the world of dance. After choreographing over forty works, she turned her focus to cinema and directing. Privilege, her award-winning sixth feature film, tackles menopause with a keen eye, focusing on the experience from differing perspectives of origin and class. As in her dance pieces, risk is an essential component—appropriately so for a film that takes on sex, race, and ageism with wit and grace. 103 min.
