Movie Review by Mike Thomas
January 6th, 2018

One For History

Favorite Movie Quote: "What can I Do? I Can do this!"

Meet Selma Bukstein, a Nonagenarian, who for the last 60 years has shared her passion for History, specifically, her personal heroes, shared in the form of hand-carved wooden dolls.

Roll Credits

THE LAST DOLL LADY chronicles the last hurrah of a group of dedicated ladies called the Dolls of Democracy. In the Fifties and Sixties, there were hundreds of them, spreading their passion through their wooden heroes. They would travel to schools mainly, but to anyone who would give them a forum. Unfortunately, with the New Millennium, interest in this program has waned, and Selma is to become an extinct breed if she cannot revitalizes the program, even with a handful of Doll Ladies.

At 91 yeas young, she is a fireball, ginning up interest in her audiences. It is only her passion that keeps her audiences affixed to these wooden dolls. And thought she tries, follow up is lacking. She apparently receives no real outside funding, so her travel, her handouts, even her snacks she provides are out of her own pocket. You have to admire her energy, from a person who is three times, the dedication of a person a third her age.

On my personal rating scale, with "5" being drop everything and see the film now; if you're female, bear the producer's children and "0" being burn down the theater, murder the staff, and violate their dog, this movie earns a "4.5" using my Bell Curve for Documentary films.
The film is unrated, and is acceptable for all age groups.

THE LAST DOLL LADY stars Selma Bukstein, and written and directed by Taryn Hough.
