A feature documentary on the life and music of Phil Lynott, telling the story of how a young black boy from working class 1950's Dublin, became Ireland's Greatest Rock Star. As lead singer of Thin Lizzy, Phil Lynott was a songwriter, a poet, a dreamer, a wildman. Told extensively through the words of Phil himself and focusing on some of his iconic songs, the film gets to the heart of Philip, the father, the husband, the friend, the son, the rock icon, the poet, the dreamer.
Thin Lizzy were the quintessential rock band, and the band’s classic line-up of Phil Lynott, Brian Downey, Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson in full flight was absolutely electric – and in Phil Lynott, they had one of the greatest front men of all time. The new film was recently awarded the prestigious Doc’n Roll Film Festival ‘Best Doc’ with the festival bestowing its top honours on Dublin-based director Emer Reynolds’ “mesmeric portrait” of Phil Lynott, the charismatic poet, songwriter and wild man.
