R. J. Cutler’s new documentary The September Issue debuted at Sundance this past weekend to several packed houses, but when will the general public get to view it?
Well, if you go to Netflix you can add the film to your “saved” queue though no date is listed as to when it will be available. Another hope? A&E, the original destination for the film, says they still plan to air the film sometime this year.
While Anna Wintour didn’t make the Friday night premiere, she and daughter Bee Schaffer did attend a public viewing on Saturday, and the premiere of “Rudo y Cursi.”
“[I'm] channeling mountain casual. It is actually my first time wearing jeans to work,” Wintour said. She wore a leather Michael Kors jacket with a fox collar, an Oscar de la Renta turtleneck, J Brand jeans and Manolo Blahnik boots.
“This is very much R.J.’s film. I want to make it very clear that he had complete freedom to put together the movie that he wanted and it’s not in any way Vogue behind him telling him what he can and cannot do,” she said.
This may be in response to comments that Vogue, Wintour and Grace Coddington seem to be viewed through rose-colored glasses in the documentary.
Scenes we’re excited for?
– Bee attempting to discuss her future legal career with her mother
– An opening montage of Vogue editors freaking out about Anna
– Andre Leon Talley playing tennis
– Grace directing a photo shoot with Patrick Demarchelier and Caroline Trentini
