I’ve been listening to the Bee Gees on repeat since the teaser for Frank Marshall’s documentary came out a few weeks ago, and now the full trailer is here, heralding the film that will save Christmas (sorry, Mariah, I’m fickle I know) – following the incredible highs and terrible lows of decades in the spotlight (or trying to get back into it).
“When you become famous you think everyone loves you and they’re gonna love you forever. It’s not true.”
The originally scheduled one-night-only UK cinema release is now, thanks to lockdown, off the cards. Instead The Bee Gees: How Can you Mend A Broken Heart is showing on Sky Documentaries on 13 December and then on DVD and digital download on 14 December.
This is first feature length documentary about the iconic group with never-before-seen footage of the band.
Here’s the synopsis:
THE BEE GEES: HOW CAN YOU MEND A BROKEN HEART is the first feature-length documentary about the legendary band who wrote more than 1,000 songs, created twenty number one hits and sold more than 220 million records to date. The film chronicles the rise of the iconic group, consisting of brothers Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb, their music and its evolution over the years and includes contemporary interviews with Barry Gibb, Eric Clapton, Mark Ronson, Noel Gallagher, Lulu, Nick Jonas, Chris Martin and Justin Timberlake.
