    In A Woman Like That, Emmy-nominated filmmaker Ellen Weissbrod merges her own “coming of middle-age” story with her pursuit of the truth behind the myths of 17th-century female artist Artemisia Gentileschi’s dramatic work and provocative life. The film is a freewheeling tribute to an artist who leaps across centuries to speak to us all. It reveals the enduring power of storytelling—in paintings, in films, and in our lives— as the filmmaker overcomes her own doubts and fears and travels the world in her own adventurous way. Weissbrod shows that who gets to tell the story matters, and learns that maybe she too, can be a woman like that.
