ABOVE: Today would've been Divine's 76th birthday. He'd be around the same age as Cher and Dolly Parton. Instead, we lost him in 1988. Still remember the sting when a co-worker told me. I didn't believe her (no Internet) and went back to my dorm and dug through recycled newspapers to find the obit.

Pete Buttigieg & Rita Moreno: A Boy & A Girl Who Decided To Go For It Comments (0)

In our personality-saturated society, documentaries have an increasingly heavy lift. After all, we all already volunteer our own self-documentaries on a daily basis via social media. What is there left to learn about public figures in an age of TMI?

Rita Moreno: Just a Girl Who Decided to Go for It, directed by Mariem Pérez Riera, offers an intimate peek at Moreno's life as she anticipates her 90th birthday, including a generous sampling of her incredible career across multiple platforms.
