Miss Sharon Jones!
USA, Feature Documentary, 2015, 93 min

The extraordinary soul-singing powerhouse Sharon Jones and her band the Dap‐Kings (who backed Amy Winehouse) have gained a large and fanatical fan base that continues growing with no end in sight. This film begins a few years ago as Sharon visits a barber to have her head shaved for treatment of her recently diagnosed pancreatic cancer. The film ends with her blow-the-lid-off stage return, and the release of her Grammy-nominated album “Give the People What They Want.” Two-time Oscar winner Barbara Kopple documents Sharon’s personal and musical journey, and gives us access to those moments, both sad and triumphant, that put the soul back in Sharon’s music.
