Brilliant programme about a very talented but tragic figure … You’ll recognise a lot of the songs even if you don’t know his name.
A wildly entertaining, star-studded documentary about The Beatles‘ favorite American musician, WHO IS HARRY NILSSON (AND WHY IS EVERYBODY TALKIN’ ABOUT HIM)? is a vibrant and definitive portrait of one of the most talented singer-songwriters in pop music history. Directed by Emmy and Grammy nominee John Scheinfeld (THE U.S. VS.

The film delves deeply into Nilsson’s artistic process, his spirited relationship with John Lennon, and the additions that haunted him in and outside the studio — as well as the peace he found as a devoted husband and father.
