The next Hillcrest Film Society film to be shown at the Hillcrest Community Centre in Hillcrest Road, Newhaven will be 20 Feet From Stardom, starting at 7.30pm on Saturday the 13th of December.

"The untold true story of the backing singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century. Triumphant and heartbreaking in equal measure, the film is both a tribute to the unsung voices who brought shape and style to popular music and a reflection on the conflicts, sacrifices and rewards of a career spent harmonising with others. These gifted artists span a range of styles, genres and eras of popular music, but each has a uniquely fascinating and personal story to share of life spent in the shadows of superstardom. The movie also contains rare archival footage, a peerless soundtrack and intimate interviews with Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Mick Jagger and Sting to name just a few."
