Storyline

This powerful portrait of the life and career of great American music icon Glen Campbell opens to the viewer the world of the singular talent who created hits like Rhinestone Cowboy, Wichita Lineman and Gentle on My Mind. Glen won the Grammy for Lifetime Achievement and is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 2011, when Campbell was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, he joined forces with his family to fight the biggest battle of his life. Glen and his wife, Kim, made history by going public with the diagnosis - the first time a major American celebrity would share this experience with the world. The Campbell family then embarked on a short "Goodbye Tour," but the three-week engagement turned into an emotional and triumphant 151-show nationwide tour de force. This epic human drama about the undying bond between Glen and Kim, and their unwavering caring for each other, chronicles a story of love, resilience and the power of song. GLEN CAMPBELL...I'LL BE ME is the true tale ... Written by PCH Films

A sad and lovely film
30 November 2015 | by rps-2See all my reviews

It must have taken incredible courage to make this film. It exudes love, compassion and hope. It was a brave decision to undertake a farewell tour after Campbell was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and an even braver one to produce a documentary about it. Just imagine the production and logistical problems in shooting the many intimate scenes with a man who already was unable to cope, unable even to remember where the bathroom was in his own home. Why was it done? Certainly not for profit. Probably to extend a lifeline to the ailing Campbell. Definitely to publicize the ravages of this horrible disease. Campbell had it all. Incredible good looks. Immense success. A wonderful family. Yet it all was gradually and cruelly snatched away by Alzheimer's. I found it quite fascinating that even though most of Campbell's mind went blank, the part of it involved with music remained vibrant. This is a very sad but very honest motion picture, full of love and respect but without false hope.
