UPDATE 11.06.13: The trailer we posted keeps getting pulled, so here’s the UK edition. You’ll get the idea…
For a band that famously couldn’t break America (and inspired this great tumblr after being announced as Coachella 2013 headliners), it’s notable that Shane Meadows’ documentary about the Stone Roses is playing in theaters across our country.
Made of Stone chronicles the Roses’ history from their 1983 formation to their 2012 reunion. Meadows, the man behind 2006’s This Is England, debuted the documentary earlier this month at CBGB Fest in New York.
Made of Stone comes to Cambridge’s Brattle Theatre on Wednesday, November 6. Tickets are $12 for the general public. Discounts are available for students, seniors, and Brattle members. The Vanyaland crew will be in attendance asking the important questions: Are you all alone? Are you made of stone? And of course, when can we expect a Seahorses reunion?
From the Brattle site:
In 2012, a resurrection no one thought possible took place when legendary band, The Stone Roses reformed after 16 years. And acclaimed filmmaker Shane Meadows (This Is England) was there to capture the band as they prepared for their much-anticipated reunion, which culminated in three triumphant homecoming gigs at Manchester’s Heaton Park in front of 220,000 adoring fans.
Rich in previously unseen archive footage and featuring unparalleled access to the record-breaking sell-out concerts, MADE OF STONE is a revealing journey through the life of one of the most revered and influential bands in British music history.
