Bill Cunningham New York

He who seeks beauty will find it.

— Bill Cunningham

I've always thought that the publishing business must have the quirkiest, most original, most resourceful, most extraordinary cast of characters around. Of course I would think that. Well, on Sunday I had the good fortune to see the documentary Bill Cunningham New York, which is playing at the Ritz at the Bourse in Philadelphia, and I wasn't disappointed. Bill Cunningham is all that and more—much more. He's a lovely, gentle man who truly lives for his work. If you can catch this film, you should. It's being held over at the Ritz at least through April 21, or you can click here for more theater locations.
