How can one rock band be successful, underrated, hugely influential, and criminally overlooked all at the same time? Edgar Wright’s debut documentary The Sparks Brothers, which features commentary from celebrity fans Flea, Jane Wiedlin, Beck, Jack Antonoff, Jason Schwartzman, Neil Gaiman, and more, takes audiences on a musical odyssey through five weird and wonderful decades with brothers/bandmates Ron and Russell Mael celebrating the inspiring legacy of Sparks: your favorite band’s favorite band. A Focus Features release

Official Selection: Sundance Film Festival, South by Southwest Film Festival

The Sparks Brothers courses with the energy of one of your smartest friends talking your ear off about their favorite band.”

Wright, the virtuoso director of Shaun of the Dead and Baby Driver, among others, and an ace soundtrack assembler, is uniquely suited to make this tribute.”
