Once Were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and The Band

Opens Aug 7, 2020


A confessional, cautionary, and occasionally humorous tale of a young life and the creation of one of the most enduring groups in the history of popular music — The Band. The film follows Robbie Robertson from Canada to the Mississippi Delta; from a big, pink house in Woodstock, to the Last Waltz.


"Has the power to transport you but also to break your heart."

"Even at its most painful, the Band's story captures something golden, incendiary and wistfully beautiful — 'so beautiful,' Robertson reflects, 'that it went up in flames.'"
-Washington Post
