Synopsis: A documentary on the Manhattan department store with interviews from an array of fashion designers, style icons, and celebrities.
Release Date: May 3, 2013
Thoughts: Every now and then, it’s nice to take a breather from the onslaught of the political/financial/wartime documentaries and just soak in something with a bit more levity. Like The September Issue (about the inner workings of Vogue Magazine), Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s outfits itself with a lighter touch as it lets us go inside and behind the scenes of the hallowed walls at NYC’s famed store. With interviews from a clothing rack full of celebs and designers, I’m not expecting this to be an Oscar nominee next year but am looking forward to a documentary that isn’t quite so heavy-handed.
