GLEN CAMPBELL: I’LL BE ME
Musician Glen Campbell starts a farewell tour after he is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, and he and his family navigate the unpredictable nature of the disease through love, laughter and music.
This powerful portrait of the life and career of great American music icon Glen Campbell opens to the viewer the world of the singular talent who created hits like Rhinestone Cowboy, Wichita Lineman and Gentle on My Mind. Campbell won the Grammy for Lifetime Achievement and is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.
In 2011, when Campbell was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, he joined forces with his family to fight the biggest battle of his life. Glen and his wife, Kim, made history by going public with the diagnosis — the first time a major American celebrity would share this experience with the world. The Campbell family then embarked on a short "Goodbye Tour," but the three-week engagement turned into an emotional and triumphant 151-show nationwide tour de force.
This epic human drama about the undying bond between Glen and Kim — and their unwavering caring for each other — chronicles a story of love, resilience and the power of song. “Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me” is the true tale of how America's greatest country star would not give up his music or his family, against all odds.
The film features those who know and love Glen, including Bruce Springsteen, Bill Clinton, The Edge, Paul McCartney, Jay Leno, Vince Gill, Jimmy Webb, Blake Shelton, Sheryl Crow, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Steve Martin, Chad Smith and Taylor Swift among many others. Rare vintage footage and extraordinary new performances of Glen's most beloved hits immerse this moving cinematic account in the overwhelming talent of this humble family man.
With joy and a tireless sense of humor, Glen and his family live each moment in the present while preparing for the future, all while playing their music to sold out venues on a star spangled voyage spanning the country from Carnegie Hall to the Hollywood Bowl.
“Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me” was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song (“I’m Not Gonna Miss You”) and its soundtrack won two Grammy Awards.
“One of the most remarkable documentaries in recent years. You do not want to miss this movie.” — Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
