Movie review: Shine a Light - A Martin Scorsese film
In the autumn 2006 the Rolling Stones gave two concerts at Beacon Theatre in New York. Here, in the 2,800-seater old Broadway theatre that opened in 1928, we encounter living legends Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ron Wood and Charlie Watts. Performing before an enthusiastic audience that includes Hillary and Bill Clinton, the Stones present their hit songs as well as less known numbers. Guest appearances include Christina Aguilera, and blues legends Buddy Guy and Jack White.
On April 4th, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese and the world's greatest rock n' roll band will unite to bring theater audiences the year's most extraordinary musical film event, "Shine a Light."
Scorsese's concert documentary will show the world of the Rolling Stones as they've never been seen before. Scorsese assembled a legendary team of cinematographers to capture the raw energy of the legendary band.
