Movie Review: Susan Boyle: An Unlikely Superstar

Movie Review!

Susan Boyle: An Unlikely Superstar
Rating: unsure - I think PG?
Running Time: 60 Minutes
Release Date: 2011
Genre: Documentary


My Review:
The title "Unlikely Superstar" is more than a perfect description of Ms. Boyle. Prior to getting married, I was obsessed with reality TV shows. I loved anything that featured people. I've always been a fan. When I was younger, my Nana lived with us. Whenever we would watch a reality TV show she would encourage us to get out there and "make some money by acting like a fool". :) Even though I had my supporting Nana, I never auditioned for any of the TV shows. You see, I lacked something that Susan didn't lack. Courage.

As I watched the documentary of Susan Boyle, I was amazed by two things. The first is her raw talent. Let's be honest, her singing voice is incredible! The second thing that struck me was her courage. How courageous she must have been to audition.  Think about it, who usually auditions for these things? Little girls with big dreams! By the time you are an adult the chances of one auditioning aren't exactly high.

Overall, I enjoyed watching this documentary.
Warning - there were some scenes with people smoking, and there may have been some light language. I honestly can't remember if there was any language. However, for my conservative readers I wanted to give you a fair warning. :)

The film is available on netflix through live streaming.

Hope your enjoy!
