Miss Sharon Jones

Director: Barbara Kopple

From Oscar-winning documentary maven Barbara Kopple (Harlan County USA) comes this stirring story of electrifying soul singer Sharon Jones. A former New York corrections officer, Jones found fame in her 40s as the front-woman for the R&B/funk band The Dap-Kings. But in 2013, Jones was diagnosed with a serious illness. Miss Sharon Jones! follows the magnetic Jones and her close-knit family of band members through one of their most tumultuous years together, filled with highs and lows, tears and joy, and plenty of rip-roaring musical numbers. A “beautiful, touching documentary” (RogerEbert.com) and “intimate” and “rousing” (Indiewire.com), Miss Sharon Jones! is an emotional roller-coaster ride of a film and a powerful testament to one woman’s strength and resilience.
