From Studio 54 to André Leon Talley to the ultimate woman #INCHARGE, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, this month’s hottest documentaries are incredibly close to our hearts.

First, Matt Tyrnauer’s ‘Studio 54’ shown at the Tribeca Film Festival pays homage to Diane’s old stomping ground. “Studio 54 was a very special place and moment in time...it was a super pick up place, a happening, a place to go no matter where you were before...it was a moment in history!,” says Diane. When club owners Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager built it, in an abandoned theater on W. 54th Street, they couldn’t have possibly known who would come. But from Mick Jagger to Andy Warhol, Elizabeth Taylor and Elton John, everyone came. Tyrnaur’s documentary, which deftly combines old photographs and film footage, evokes the fleeting fever dream—the club was open for just 33 months—of a famed hangout that still burns bright for all who had the pleasure of dancing there. And now, even for those who didn’t.
Next, Diane’s dear friend André Leon Talley shines in ‘The Gospel According to André’ from Magnolia Pictures. With humor and heart, filmmaker Kate Novack follows Talley’s unlikely trajectory from the Jim Crow South to a storied career at the height of fashion culture. From his first job under Andy Warhol at Interview magazine to decades at Vogue under Anna Wintour, to a friendship with the legendary Diana Vreeland, Talley blazed a trail unlike any other.

Finally, from Magnolia Pictures and directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen comes the highly anticipated ‘RBG,’ which is, like the woman it calls into focus, a dazzling mix of meme-worthy moments and serious ambition. Only the second woman appointed to the United States Supreme Court, Ruth Bader Ginsberg has fought tirelessly for equal protection of women under the law; she is at once a historical trailblazer and a pop culture phenomenon. The film balances both of those angles in what is, ultimately, an irresistible testament not only to her accomplishments and how far she’s come, but how far she’s carried other women along with her.
