Fresh on the heels of TV’s Feud: Bette and Joan, we look at another depiction of Joan Crawford, one of Hollywood’s greatest stars, in this frank biopic based on an account by her adopted daughter Christina. Charting a chain of behaviour that alternates between over-the-top devotion and jealous rage, it’s a compelling – and at times unintentionally funny – depiction of how the star system can fuel egos and insecurity. Unmissable.
