The Western Stars album marked a departure for Bruce Springsteen while still drawing on his roots; the movie is a wonderful, revelatory companion piece. A concert/documentary Springsteen co-directed with his longtime filmmaking collaborator Thom Zimny, the Western Stars film offers fans our only opportunity to see Bruce perform all 13 songs on the album, plus a bonus cover of "Rhinestone Cowboy."
Touching on themes of love and loss, loneliness, family, and the inexorable passage of time, the documentary film evokes the American West — both the mythic and the hardscrabble — weaving archival footage and Springsteen’s personal narration with song to tell the story. Springsteen shares contemplative insights on his latest works, interwoven with the striking performances recorded in April 2019 with full band and orchestra, plus featured vocalist Patti Scialfa, under the cathedral ceiling of his historic nearly 100-year-old barn.
