The Hollywood Beauty Salon was directed by Glenn Holsten who is perhaps best known for another stellar documentary set in Philadelphia, The Barefoot Artist. He’s done it again, here, with this moving collection of poignant personal portraits powerfully illustrating the utter indomitability of the human spirit.

Excellent (4 stars)
