Time & Tickets

The incomparable Bruce Springsteen performs his critically acclaimed latest album and muses on life, rock, and the American dream, in this intimate concert film.
Springsteen has only performed the album WESTERN STARS live once – for a private audience at his farmhouse – and this documentary captures that experience. Standing at centre stage, he’s flanked by an orchestra and his wife, Patti Scialfa. The archetypal character in these songs is a loner seeking redemption in love. In his memoir, Springsteen describes himself in similar terms, with Scialfa as his redeemer.
Between songs, he expands on the themes of his Broadway show, SPRINGSTEEN ON BROADWAY, describing the oppositional pulls of American life between the transient and the communal. One tug is to hit the road; the other is to build a family. After nineteen studio albums, he says, ‘I’m still writing about cars.’
