It’s a powerful portrayal and showcases the fragility of life. It also reveals truly how outward appearances can and usually are deceiving. I only wish they had talked in greater detail about mental health and showcased this young superstar getting the help she so desperately needs.
The movie is a moving portrayal of the dangerous web that is today’s music business and gives a glimpse of the true internal struggle young and exploited musicians make simply because they have VERY little control over their own lives.
The theme is Nina Simone’s Blackbird, flightless and broken, and it indeed fits the mettle of the film every step of the way. An absolute MUST see!
