United Kingdom 2016, 117 min, English, Hebrew subtitles

In 1990s England, Oasis was the name on everybody’s lips. The band’s three consecutive hit albums made the Gallagher brothers superstars. Liam and Noel, who were born in a Manchester council estate to a violent father and a runaway mother, ran the group like two prime ministers in a constant power struggle. The fans went wild, the tabloids ran amuck, and the Gallaghers delivered: fights, drugs, sex, swagger (once sticking a statuette up their behinds at the Brit awards) but also lots of talent. From home movies to concert footage in front of hundreds of thousands, Liam and Noel are revealed in all their funny, biting, and belligerent glory: “Even if we were fishmongers, we’d hit each other over the head with a haddock every now and then.”
