Trivia

While this documentary delves into Ms. Ronstadt's more prominent romantic relationships, it makes no mention of her two grown children (both adopted). This is likely due to her wish to shelter them from the spotlight. See more »

"When will I be loved?"
22 September 2019 | by Red-125See all my reviews

Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice (2019) is a documentary based on Linda Ronstadt's autobiography. The film was directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman.

Ronstadt was a superb artist and she has had a fascinating life. She mostly appears in the film via clips of her varied artistic endeavors, most of which are wonderful. (Yes--I'm a Linda Ronstadt fan.)

Also appearing are performing artists who knew and performed with Ronstadt: Bonnie Raitt, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, and Jackson Browne.

The movie is a musical delight, and a tribute to a wonderful performer and a wonderful human being. If you enjoyed Linda Ronstadt as a performer, this is a must-see film. Even if you haven't heard of Ronstadt, the movie is worth seeing.

We saw the film at Rochester's great Little Theatre. If you have a chance to see it in a theater, go for it. If not, it will work on the small screen. The movie has an extremely high IMDb rating of 8.2. Trust IMDb raters on this one.
