Cook Library Cinema Club: 20 Feet From Stardom
We're introducing a new component to the Read! Watch! Listen! blog: The Cook Library Cinema Club will offer regular postings focusing on the library's vast DVD and Blu-ray collections. If you followed us previously through the library's Tumblr blog -- we're glad you found us here! If not -- welcome! We hope you'll check in regularly for features on movie and television news, DVD releases, film recommendations, classic movies, and hidden gems in the library's film collection. Let's get started!
Chances are you've never heard of back-up singer Merry Clayton, but we'll bet you've heard of The Rolling Stones! One of our favorite new films is this year's Oscar winning documentary -- 20 Feet From Stardom -- a fascinating look at the talented singers who back-up some of the biggest and best bands in the world. This entertaining film shines a well-deserved spotlight on the wonderful performers you hear but rarely see.
Take a moment to watch the trailer for the film below -- and then reserve a copy to watch at home!
