Finding Vivian Maier (2013)

Director(s): John Maloof, Charlie Siskel. 83 min. Not Rated. Documentary.

A portion of more than 150,000 negatives of a late 'nanny photographer' are accidentally found in an auction. The photos (which are truly beautiful) are developed, and no one knows why such a talented photographer went intentionally unknown her entire life. This film shows the process of one man to find the mystery behind Vivian Maier, but I'm not sure there's enough engaging material here for a feature documentary (or a 94% Rotten Tomatoes score). Of course, everybody has a story - but if we had some answers, this might have been a story to tell.
