A portrait of the pioneering female rocker, Suzi Quatro.
Suzi Quatro began her career in the early 1970s, a time when there were few women in rock and roll, and went on to sell more than 50 million records around the world, inspiring scores of female rockers in her wake, from Joan Jett and Deborah Harry to the Go-Gos and L7. Yet she never quite made it to headliner status in the US, where she is instead remembered by some as the character Leather Tuscadero on HAPPY DAYS. Filmmaker Liam Firmager aims to correct this, laying out Quatro’s trailblazing story, showcasing her music, and letting rock royalty like Jett, Harry, Alice Cooper, and others pay the still recording artist her proper due. While the film could have done away with some cheesy graphics, and might have benefitted from a tighter edit, it succeeds in making the case for the vibrant Quatro and will no doubt make some viewers seek out more of her music.
