  • Drew Kelly's rating of the film Miss Sharon Jones!

    The narrative arc was a little elusive for me at first, but it became eminently clear in the final act: Sharon's music has always been a means of survival for her, even before cancer, and when she plays it, she puts her whole life into it. Fighting cancer becomes a metaphor for that passion. You can see it in the physicality of her perfomance and expressivity of her vocals. An even more emotional end now she is gone.
