Storyline

Dubbed 'the black Beatles' by the British tabloids, the 'other' four lads from Liverpool recount their incredible story from the tough streets of Toxteth to the bright lights of New York - a journey of international stardom as Britain's pioneering million-selling soul and funk band. Against a backdrop of prejudice and political turmoil in the 1970s, The Real Thing were the first all-black British band to hit #1 in the UK pop charts, with the universally-loved 'You To Me Are Everything'. Other hits like 'Can't Get By Without You', 'You'll Never Know What You're Missing' and 'Can You Feel the Force' set dance-floors alight, but their proudest moment was composing the rousing 'Children of the Ghetto' - the first ever protest song to address the plight of black immigrants in Britain. The group's massive success has been tempered with racism, drug addiction and suicide but, for the very first time, original band members Eddy Amoo, Chris Amoo and Dave Smith reveal the brutally honest truth ...

A must see movie for any music fan
7 November 2019 | by jo_zeroSee all my reviews

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.
