THE BEE-GEES: HOW CAN YOU MEND A BROKEN HEART
One of the most iconic music groups of the 20th Century, the best-selling family act gets an in-depth, toe-tapping portrait in this captivating doc.
The British-born, Australian-raised Gibb brothers—Robin, Barry, Maurice, and later on, Andy—are known to music lovers around the world by their stage name, the Bee Gees. In this authoritative documentary, Oscar-winning filmmaker Frank Marshall takes viewers on a journey through the ups and downs of the legendary group’s career. Ascending to stardom in the 1960s with their signature tight, falsetto harmonies, the band’s star was on the wane by the early 70s. Then along came a little project called Saturday Night Fever, a film that went on to define an entire era, and whose mega-selling soundtrack propelled the Bee Gees into the upper echelons of pop music royalty. With their image now closely connected to disco, the Bee Gees’ fortunes shifted throughout the decades along with the genre’s popularity, yet they continued to evolve and reinvent themselves. With its soundtrack of sterling hits, THE BEE-GEES: HOW CAN YOU MEND A BROKEN HEART is a reminder of the group’s record-smashing musical legacy and provides eye-opening insight into their unique dynamic and extraordinary talents.
