A HEAD FULL OF DREAMS offers an in-depth and intimate portrait of the band's spectacular rise from the backrooms of Camden pubs to selling out stadiums across the planet. At the heart of the story is the band's unshakeable brotherhood which has endured through many highs and lows. The film is directed by Mat Whitecross - director of Supersonic, the acclaimed 2016 Oasis documentary - who met the four friends at college in London, before they'd even formed the band. From the very first rehearsal in a cramped student bedroom, Whitecross has been there to capture the music and the relationships on tape. Using extensive unseen archive, behind-the-scenes and live footage, A HEAD FULL OF DREAMS sees the band reflect upon their two decades together. It was filmed during Coldplay's record-breaking A Head Full Of Dreams Tour, which was certified as the third biggest tour of all time, playing to more than 5.5 million fans across the world.
What makes Coldplay a special group of people is not just their intoxicating sound or often mesmerizing lyrics, but their humble, grateful, happy, positive way of delivering their music.
I found the documentary a personal and nostalgic journey that catapulted the emotions of following your dreams. Presenting the film in such an intimate way reminds us that the band are humans like the rest of us, people who pursued their dreams and did it with belief and hard work
A Head Full of Dreams is an appropriate reminder that Coldplay have never been a manufactured band, they're really home-grown and hard-working from the start. The difference is they had the time to change, mould and take the risks and actually did. All the stories inside the film really made you inspired in so many ways. Hard work pays off, at the end of the day, if you're a fan or not, you need to admit it that they are that good!
