Hats Off

3 out of 5 stars
It doesn’t take long for Mimi Weddell’s elegant aura to crumble, disarmingly, in this documentary about the 93-year-old actor who once played Stanford’s grandmother on Sex and the City: “I find if people walk slowly in front of me these days, I want to kick them.” Weddell, bone-thin and frequently seen clutching a cigarette holder with arthritic fingers, lives by the motto “rise above it.” As we tag along to casting calls and dance classes, or listen to her children’s descriptions of growing up with a Mimi instead of a mom, one thing is for sure: Weddell has soul.
