Morgan Neville's hugely enjoyable, Oscar-winning documentary celebrates the unsung heroes who helped make some of popular music's most celebrated songs and albums special. As Bruce Springsteen rather diplomatically puts it, the role of the backing singer is "a somewhat unheralded position", and 20 Feet from Stardom tries to right this wrong by highlighting the achievements of veteran performers like Darlene Love.
Neville's film is full of such anecdotes, and demonstrates the fine line between fame and obscurity.
