The story of a band that went from backing up Bob Dylan to becoming one of the most influential groups of its era. A confessional, cautionary, and occasionally humorous tale of Robbie Robertson’s young life and the creation of one of the most enduring groups in the history of popular music, The Band.
Once Were Brothers blends rare archival footage, photography, iconic songs and interviews with many of Robertson’s friends and collaborators including Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Martin Scorsese, Peter Gabriel, Taj Mahal, Dominique Robertson, Ronnie Hawkins, and more.
“There is a pronounced sense of Robertson taking back a story he clearly feels has been hijacked.” – Glenn Kelly, RogerEbert.com
