Dreams never expire but sometimes they are deferred. Miss Sharon Jones follows the talented and gregarious soul singer of the Grammy nominated R&B band “Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings.” In the most challenging year of her life, Sharon Jones confronts pancreatic cancer. As she struggles to find her health and voice again, the film intimately uncovers the mind and spirit of a powerful woman determined to regain the explosive singing career that eluded her for 50 years.
“No mere music doc, Barbara Kopple’s celebration of soul queen Sharon Jones captures the tiny singer’s incredible strength in the face of cancer. – Peter Debruge, VARIETY
“If you somehow stumble into this film without knowing the music of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, it’s hard to imagine that you’d walk out with anything but the desire to go buy all of their albums.” – Matt Shiverdecker, AUSTIN AMERICAN STATESMAN
