‘…a heartfelt, engrossing tribute’ – New York Post
Janis Joplin is one of the most revered and iconic rock’n’roll singers of all time, a tragic and misunderstood figure who thrilled millions of listeners and blazed new creative trails before her death in 1970 at age 27.
This in-depth examination, presented by the Oscar-nominated director Amy Berg, is an intimate and insightful portrait of a complicated, driven, and often beleaguered artist.
Joplin’s own words tell much of the film’s story through a series of letters she wrote to her parents over the years, many of them made public in the film for the first time.
A new understanding of a bright, complex woman whose surprising rise and sudden demise changed music forever.
