20 Feet From Stardom
20 Feet From Stardom - out this week at Eden Court cinema!


Release: Friday April 25th (Eden Court, Inverness)

Synopsis: Millions of people know their voices, but before now very few have known their names. In this compelling new film, award-winning director Morgan Neville pays tribute to backing singers, the unsung voices behind some of the biggest bands in popular music.

Why You Should See It: The winner of Best Documentary at this year's Oscars, this documentary is a fascinating look at the unsung (HAHAHAHA) heroes of music. It's not afraid to showcase the personal and professional sadness of the individuals in question, those dreaming of stardom but never quite making it.

Its interviews with some of the biggest names in music about their backing singers – Bruce Springsteen and Mick Jagger both feature in this – provides another contrast. Definitely one to check out.
