Ella's is a fascinating story of strife, success, and its price..
11 June 2020 | by rjsparkSee all my reviews

This documentary is not. A weak strand holds it together, with a whole lot of unworthy interviews, and ending with a star struck unknown rendering ella's tisket tasket without any of ella's flavor.. A lost opportunity..
