Warm and energetic, Shane Meadows’s love letter to the Stone Roses may be his best film so far.
A documentary about the English alternative rock band, The Stone Roses.
After 15 years apart, the Stone Roses regrouped in 2011 for a reunion many thought would never happen. By the next year, they were touring the world with renewed vigor, and the band continues to push on in its second life. In the new documentary The Stone Roses: Made of Stone, director Shane Meadows traces the band’s history and reunion as the musicians prepared for a string of homecoming shows in Manchester last June.
As a fan, Meadows doesn’t just focus on the present – he’s also bringing the Stone Roses’ storied past to light. Footage of the band’s sudden rise and aggravated dissolution fill the backdrop of one of British rock’s most massive reunions.
The Stone Roses: Made of Stone premiered May 30th in Manchester, and on June 5th in the U.K. and Ireland. So far there’s no U.S. release scheduled.
