Although mainstream success eluded them, the legendary Memphis band Big Star’s three albums have become critically lauded touchstones of the rock music canon. A seminal group in the history of alternative music, Big Star has been cited as an influence by artists including REM, The Replacements, Belle & Sebastian, Elliot Smith and Flaming Lips, to name just a few. With never-seen-before-footage and photos, in-depth interviews and a rousing musical tribute by the bands they inspired, BIG STAR: NOTHING CAN HURT ME is a story of artistic and musical salvation.
"The movie is destined to be a seminal rock doc…one that will bring Big Star to a new generation of fans." —Indiewire
