20 Feet From Stardom (12a)

Director Morgan Neville. Documentary/Music

This is a wonderfully exuberant tribute to the fabulous backing singers who worked on classic albums through the 60s & 70s. Millions loved their voices but no one even knew their names. While the guys they worked with made millions they were forgotten. But this bunch of sassy, joyful women can still enter a studio and let rip like few others on the planet. Triumphant and heartbreaking in equal measure, this interweaves poignant, funny interviews, contemporary concert footage and great archival stuff to finally give them the recognition they deserve. This fabulous, life-affirming crowd pleaser will have you coming out singing - an irresistible pleasure!

Starring Darlene Love, Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer
