THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE is, as the Festival catalogue promises, a clever film. It doesn’t launch a frontal attack on Wintour–she hardly would have turned up at the premiere if it did. But it pokes at her slyly, from the side. It is revelatory about Wintour’s relationship with her family and it explores the enduring partnership between the editor-in-chief and the far more likeable (in the film, at least) creative director Grace Coddington
