Courtney Barnett, known for her creative music videos, touching lyrics and reserved demeanor, is one of Australia’s greatest contemporary rock artists. Danny Cohen’s film is the antithesis of a biography. The movie takes the audience behind Barnett’s shyness where we find an emotional artist who is struggling to find meaning for her life.
The film follows three years of Barnett’s life. We follow her from her world tour to the loneliness of her home. In her diary recordings the voice of her generation opens up about her anxiety. In this beautiful film, Barnett faces her sadness but not without holding onto hope.
