Little Richard : I Am Everything ………… (and he really was!)


It’s completely impossible not to be swept away by filmmaker Lisa Cortes’s enthusiastic admiration for Little Richard the undisputed King of Rock’ n Roll (the title that Elvis mistakenly thought was his).  Little R is a charismatic fireball whose roller coaster life on and off the stage had so many highs before it reverted back to being a convoluted mess again.  He was a troubled genius who was so good at liberating other people by example but he could never liberate himself.

This long overdue documentary  will make you fall in love with this unlikely Queer icon with the same passion as  the likes of his major fans such as Mike Jagger, David Bowie, Paul McCartney  etc

Totally Unmissable

N.B. The documentary will be screened at Miami Film Festival and then BFI Flare before being released in Movie Theatres by Magnolia Pictures on 4/21 : therefore this is just a ‘capsule’ review.
