It’s rare nowadays to look at and appreciate the people working on the fringes. If the light isn’t shining directly on it, we aren’t going to look at it. Twenty Feet From Stardom, focuses on the lives of backup singers, the songs they collaborated on, and the exploitations they endured, and asks those men and women to stand in the spotlight.
Bruce Diones from The New Yorker called this movie “a loving tribute”, and that is exactly what it is. This documentary is worthy of your time. It will makes you smile and then make you want to sing. What could be better?
Twenty Feet From Stardom is available to stream on Netflix now.
