5 out of 10 Marvellous
Marika from Tipperary, 23 Jul 2013
I love movies about second chances, and this documentary about the musicians who formed the backbone of scores of the Motown hits we loved and danced to in my youth, but who were completely unknown, is a fantastically uplifting story. How they were resurrected by a musician and film director, and reintroduced to a whole new generation who were blown away to discover that so much talent had gone unrecognized. Wonderful music, performed by some of the newer artists, will have you boppping around the living room!

What's it about....
Based on Allan Slutsky's award-winning book, Standing In The Shadows of Motown tells the story of The Funk Brothers, the backing musicians for such legendary performers as Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross and The Supremes, The Temptations and Marvin Gaye. This outstanding documentary combines interviews with archive footage, re-enactments, reminiscences and new performances by the reunited Funk Brothers alongside performers such as Joan Osborne and Chaka Khan.
