RITA MORENO: JUST A GIRL WHO DECIDED TO GO FOR IT
1 hr 30 min, PG-13
Born into poverty on a Puerto Rican farm, Rita Moreno and her seamstress mother immigrated to New York City when Moreno was five years old. RITA MORENO: JUST A GIRL WHO DECIDED TO GO FOR IT illuminates the humor and the grace of Moreno, as well as lesser-known struggles faced on her path to stardom, including pernicious Hollywood sexism and abuse, a toxic relationship with Marlon Brando, and serious depression a year before she emerged an Oscar winner. Moreno’s talent and resilience triumphed over adversity, as she broke barriers, fought for representation and forged the path for new generations of artists.
