20 feet from stardom-Cheap Tuesdays @5th Ave

99% on Rotten tomatoes and great reviews!

20 Feet from StardomSynopsis :Millions know their voices, but no one knows their names. This film shines a spotlight on the untold true stories of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century. Equal amounts of triumph and heartbreak are found in this tribute to the unsung voices who brought shape and style to popular music, as the singers reflect on the conflicts, sacrifices and rewards of a career spent harmonizing with others.

    Great film! I just downloaded the soundtrack from iTunes.

    By the way, if you want to hear more Judith Hill, she recorded the soundtrack for Spike Lee's Red Hook Summer (Which explains why he was introducing her at the show in the film...)

    I totally enjoyed the film, but arrived late so didn't get the chance to chat with anyone.

    So very sorry I missed it. I hope to make the next one if it is in the next two weeks. Then I leave town for a good long while, but I would like to connect with the group. The movie sounds fabulous. Hope it was.

    Sorry, my timing is all out too and I won't make it either. Will have to check it out another day. Enjoy!

    Actually am uncertain if I can come. I would love to meet a new group of film zealots (and maybe other screenwriters to play ideas off of or collaborate). But have friend visiting and have to check to see if he will. Shd be a button for MAYBE!

    Hi Mo... I'm a maybe. I'm doing some major spring cleaning, and this will be my reward if I'm done all I need to get done. Hope to see you Tuesday.

    Cheap Tuesdays how much are tickets? I'll see if the wife want to come. Regardless I may. By the way anyone here like Shakespeare?
    Been trying to motivate some peeps in other groups to go. After I saw the film Anonymous I got inspired to see plays that I had never seen. My wife also wants to see Avenue Q. Anyone up for any of this?
