Make sure to see this film if you love music and want to be inspired...
This is an uplifting, beautiful chronicling of Linda Ronstadt's life and career. Her versatility, independence, goodness, intelligence and amazing talent are inspiring, and we sure need some inspiration these days.
Many don't know that Linda has Mexican roots, and that her forays into so many genres (pop, country, folk, rock, opera, classics, Spanish-language albums...) were generated by the eclecticism of her early family life - from singing with family at home, and sitting by the radio (her "best friend" as a child) listening to musical broadcasts.
The movie emphasizes Linda's true love of singing, her commitment to being authentic, being one of the first women to lead in the male-dominated music industry, and her enduring friendships with both men and women. This is a wonderful documentation of someone achieving the American dream with honesty and authenticity - and overcoming limits for women via talent and presence of mind. And, ultimately, she teaches us by giving us this film how to LIVE after having been diagnosed with a progressive fatal illness in 2009 (Parkinson's).
