FROM THE CRITICS
Peter DeBurge of Variety says “For those who know Jones’ work as the just-shy-of-five-foot front woman for The Dap-Kings, director Barbara Kopple’s latest femme-powerment film anthem will be a delight. And for the many who don’t, the discovery proves an even greater pleasure, offering an intimate glimpse at the fighting spirit that defines one of America’s great unsung rhythm artists.”
