Janis: Little Girl Blue (15)
Sat 12 Mar 2016
Dir. Amy J Berg. 2015. 107 mins. USA
Janis Joplin is one of the most revered and iconic rock & roll singers of all time, a tragic and misunderstood figure who thrilled millions of listeners and blazed new creative trails before her death in 1971 at age 27.
With Janis: Little Girl Blue, Oscar-nominated director Amy Berg (Deliver Us From Evil, West of Memphis) examines Joplins story in depth for the first time on film, presenting an intimate and insightful portrait of a complicated, driven, often beleaguered artist.
‘A terrific film’
‘The electric voice and lost soul come to life in a thorough profile of an all-too-brief career ????’
‘The satisfying feature-length overview that Joplin’s brief, fiercely brilliant career has long merited.’
