Citizen Jane: Battle for the City

2017 | 92 minutes | Rated NR

A warm, liberal, affirming documentary about a plucky David—in this case, journalist and neighborhood activist Jane Jacobs—triumphing over a nasty Goliath. That Goliath is Robert Moses, the urban planner whose Cross Bronx Expressway decimated an entire New York borough in the name of progress, and whose ideas about “slums” forced thousands of city dwellers into dismal, dangerous housing projects.
