United States / Ireland / Canada 2020, 97 min, English, Hebrew subtitles

More than 40 years after their inception, the Go-Go’s are still considered to be the most successful all-female band in history, and they are still performing sold-out concerts. On their way to the top, they went through all the usual turmoil that comes with fame—from drugs and alcohol to arguments over royalties—and they talk about all of it with sincerity, showing wisdom rarely found in star musicians.
The Go-Go’s taught themselves to play their instruments, wrote, composed and sang their own hits, of which there were quite a few, including Our Lips Are Sealed, Head Over Heels, and We Got the Beat. They continue to exude talent as they reminisce about the funny and sometimes hair-raising moments of their long road—one paved no less for the female musicians who followed.
