“Janis was fearless with her pain and with her truth.”

The first trailer for Janis: Little Girl Blue is out. This documentary feature, directed by Amy Berg (of Deliver us from Evil previously), recently debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival. The biography of Janis Joplin (a troubled and misunderstood rock & roll legend from the 60s) paints a familiar picture to anyone familiar with (the more recent member of the 27 club) Amy Winehouse. The film, which promises to show the human being behind the rock icon, got favourable reviews and generated positive buzz after showing at TIFF, and I can’t wait for a local release.
