A stunning film laying bare the difficult history that The Real Thing had to endure on the road to and during their great success as Britain's No.1 soul band. Their story is truly inspiring and in places, heart breaking. The telling of it, in this emotional documentary, is handled beautifully by director Simon Sheridan. A powerful and enjoyable watch, featuring great music, touching interviews with the band and many famous faces along the way. This is a must see movie for any music fan.
