Overview

The Beatles, The Backstreet Boys and One Direction, oh my! Revisit the heady days of adolescent obsession with the joyous new documentary I Used to be Normal: A Boyband Fangirl Story. Following the coming-of-age stories of four diverse women across the globe — with penchants ranging from the Fab Four to Take That — this surprisingly moving film examines complex questions of family, identity, faith and sexuality through the insightful lens of pop music.

"Masterful. Unexpectedly affecting."
