Heaven Adores You, a documentary exploring the life and music of Elliott Smith, is coming to Australian cinemas for one-night-only screenings in Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and Adelaide this month.
Directed by Nickolas Rossi, the film features more than 30 interviews with Smith’s closest friends and collaborators and is the first to be allowed to use Smith’s catalogue – including 20 previously unreleased pieces of music.
Smith, a hugely influential singer/songwriter who died tragically in 2003 aged just 34, was a revered folk-punk hero with a gift for sparkling melodies which belied the darkness of his lyrics.
Nominated for an Oscar for his song ‘Miss Misery’ from the Good Will Hunting soundtrack, Smith counted Beck, Cat Power, Death Cab For Cutie, Lou Barlow, Eels, Conor Oberst, Beth Orton, Moby, Rilo Kiley and Grandaddy amongst his friends and fans.
Tickets are on sale now from the Heaven Adores You official site and participating cinemas. Catch Heaven Adores You on one night only at the below cinemas.
