I found this movie's title to be very misleading. Rather than A Life in Eight Albums I saw Eilleen: The early years. Less a story and more a poorly assembled collection of glimpses that the viewer is roughly shoved through. Many simplified and stereotyped. It comes across as an unsophisticated low budget attempt to show moments from the story of the woman who will become Shania. The film hops and drags through the first hour. While it does move better towards the end, it is not a significant improvement. It's occasionally hard to follow what is happening or who people are unless you have some familiarity with her early life already. Hard to stick it out to the end. A few of the acting performances are good, but few are consistent. The sound is of decent quality, but the music used is basic and repetitive.
