20 Feet From Stardom

Backup singers live in a world that lies just beyond the spotlight. Their voices bring harmony to the biggest bands in popular music, but we've had no idea who these singers are or what lives they lead, until now.

Critic reviews

‘20 Feet from Stardom, this year's Oscar-winner for Best Documentary, is both rousing, upbeat fare… and a film steeped in a strange sense of yearning and regret.’Independent (UK)

‘Such a great idea for a documentary, and such a surprise to realise that it has never been done before.’ Guardian

‘The parade of incredible women, the stream of songs you won't believe they sang on, and those irresistible voices belting out keep the rhythm going through the schmaltz, even if the conductor seems to have dropped his hymn book.’ CineVue
