“A charmer of a film that puts friendly faces to that stomach-flipping feeling you get when Springsteen straps on a guitar. 9/10”
“I just saw it and it was a great music doc. Really moving and it rocked. There is nobody like Springsteen.”
“Obviously, had me crying in several places”
Michael Hann, The Guardian
“A must for fans of The Boss”
