There's an interview with the Director, Steven Shainberg, in the current issue of American PHOTO.

Although the film is supposedly based on Bosworth's bio, Shainberg apparently added quite a bit himself -- his "father and uncle had known Arbus through her lover Marvin Israel." The article/interview goes on to say the "movie is mostly fiction" focusing on an "invented relationship" and "tries to imagine the artistic transformation" Arbus underwent "during three months in 1958."

Still, I intend to see it.
