Coming fresh off of the publishing of his memoir Born to Run and unprecedented success of his one-man show Springsteen on Broadway, Bruce Springsteen released his latest album Western Stars to widespread critical acclaim. With this film of the same name, Springsteen acts for the first time as a director, working alongside his longtime collaborator Thom Zimny to capture the sole performance of the album’s 13 tracks for a private audience in his New Jersey farmhouse. Performing alongside his wife Patti Scialfa and a 30-piece orchestra, Springsteen alternates between the songs and the stories and observations that inspired them, providing an intimate and sensitive look at one of our greatest living songwriters.
