I was delighted to have my Netflix overlords recommend to me Albert Maysles’s 2014 documentary about then-93-year-old Iris Apfel. It’s the perfect pairing of filmmaker and subject, a total delight.
Some bonuses: you will think about your own style, and conclude that no, you are not an embarrassment to the kids because you occasionally wear an odd-shaped hunk of costume jewelry, and no, your closet is not too overstuffed with clothing from your shoulder-padded glory days, because Iris has you beat on both fronts. There is no contest.
She’s 96 now, and inspiring as ever. The internet abounds with her bon mots.
