A documentary about a young man who bought a trunk full of undeveloped photographs and wound up uncovering the life’s work of a nanny who kepts her talents a secret from everyone she knew. As the young man sets out to learn more about said nanny, he starts finding answers he never could have imagined.
Aside from it being a documentarian’s dream to stumble upon such a rare find, it’s just an extraordinary story that’s as well told as it is easy to get caught up in. As both an introduction to Maier’s incredible photography and a fascinating journey into her unusual life, it makes for one easy recommendation.
It’s got a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes.
