Available on iTunes, Hulu
Presented by Academy Award Nominee JOHNNY DEPP and directed by JULIEN TEMPLE (Glastonbury, The Filth and the Fury, Joe Strummer: The Future is Unwritten), the film deep dives into the life of the tortured Irish vocalist, best known as the lead singer and songwriter of the Pogues, who famously combined traditional Irish music with the visceral energy of punk rock. Featuring unseen archival footage from the band and MacGowan’s family, as well as animation from legendary illustrator Ralph Steadman, Julien Temple’s rollicking love letter spotlights the iconic frontman up to his 60th birthday celebration, where singers, movie stars and rock ’n’ roll outlaws gather to celebrate the man and his legacy.
