AT THE FILM OWNER’S REQUEST, THIS FILM IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR BINGE VIEWING PASS HOLDERS.
This is the unmissable, ultimate celebration of a global superstar as well as an intimate portrait of a woman who overcame extreme adversity to define herself on her own terms.
Born Anna Mae Bullock in Tennessee, Tina Turner rose from poverty and a dysfunctional early life to achieve international stardom alongside her abusive bandleader husband, Ike. Eventually leaving him, Tina forged a new identity as an even bigger solo star. It’s a story about survival and the endurance of talent which continues to inspire.
The film invites us into Tina’s private world with an impressive array of witnesses of her life including Angela Bassett, Oprah Winfrey, MTV news anchor Kurt Loder and playwright Katori Hall.
By the end of the film, you will know you are standing at the feet of a rock and roll legend.
Clearly the musical icon’s way of telling her story one final, definitive time — and then saving the rest of her moments for herself.
