The most influential band you’ve never heard of get the loving cinematic tribute they deserve in this infectious, Sundance-selected documentary from Edgar Wright.

Featuring interviews with the brothers themselves, Ron and Russell Mael, as well as testimonies from their many devoted fans from the music industry and beyond, The Sparks Brothers is a strong argument for the cementing the group’s integral status in the evolution of popular music.
