Wokingham Film Society Present 20 feet from Stardom at Emmbrook Sports & Social Club

  • Wokingham Music Club Emmbrook Sports & Social Club Lowther Rd Wokingham, England, RG41 1JB United Kingdom (map)

A first at Wokingham Music Club.

A film and not just any old film but probably the best music film made in the last 10 years, the multi award winning 20 feet from Stardom

Investigating the unbridgeable gulf between the back and front of the stage, Morgan Neville concludes that talent and stardom may not be intertwined, as each of his interviewees wrestles group dynamics and personal ambition.

A sharply cut early montage neatly establishes gospel singing as the bedrock of the blues and beyond, with conversation often slipping spontaneously into song.

Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Bette Midler et al offer insight into the music business while Sting witters about "spirituality", but it's the likes of Darlene Love who are the real stars here. The result is joyous and uplifting.

Doors open at 7pm and film time is 7.30pm
