“Commendably bold.” —Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter
A larger-than-life entertainer, an androgynous glam-pop diva, an unpredictable media presence–Grace Jones is all these things and more.
Sophie Fiennes’ documentary goes beyond the traditional music biography, offering a portrait as stylish and unconventional as its subject. Taking us home with her to Jamaica, into the studio with long-time collaborators Sly & Robbie, and backstage at gigs around the world, the film reveals Jones as a lover, daughter, mother, and businesswoman who is an accomplished code-switcher. The stage is the fixed point to which the film returns, with eye-popping performances of “Slave to the Rhythm,” “Pull Up to the Bumper,” and “Love is the Drug.” 2017, U.K./Ireland, DCP, 115 minutes. Recommended for 16+.
