Doris is exposed as a rebel who defies society’s prejudices and creates her own version of the American Dream.

Press

  • Nobody can tell a story like Payne herself. She does so with gusto.
    Linda Barnard, THE TORONTO STAR
  • Buyer buzz should ignite for world-preeming U.S. doc features like… Matthew Pond and Kirk Marcolina’s “The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne” (about the international jewel thief with a six-decade track record)
    Jennie Punter, VARIETY
  • Unsurprisingly, Payne's life story is currently set to be made into a film starring Halle Berry, who has her work cut out for her if she's going to inhabit the devilishly charming Miss Doris Payne. Before that becomes an inevitable awards season event, don't miss this opportunity to get to know the real Doris Payne in this consistently engaging picture.
