About:
A look back at the celebrated pop artist’s career.

Singer Linda Ronstadt emerged in the folk music scene of the 1960s, but, as shown in directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s loving, if somewhat conventional, biopic, she never let a specific genre define her. Over the course of her long career, which ended just a few years ago in 2011 when she retired due to Parkinson’s, Ronstadt continually challenged the music industry – and herself – by tackling a wide range of styles, not in desperate attempts at reinvention, but instead because she had a genuine interest in everything from classic Mexican ballads, opera, rock, and jazz – and she could sing them all beautifully. This aspect of her career, as well as the singer’s candid insight into the male-dominated world of 1970s rock culture in which she made her mark as a best-selling artist, helps elevate this project and reminds viewers of her impact in entertainment.
