Description:
 Black diva Sharon Jones had an outsize personality that helped her battle both pancreatic cancer and studio executives in order to complete a funk and soul album as she continued on with energetic live performances. Though she died late in 2016, you can get to know this force of nature by seeing a “year in the life” movie about the woman and her band, the Dep Kings, who counted Prince as a fan. Jones’ love of life and joy in performing are uplifting. " 'Miss Sharon Jones!'delivers a nonstop concert of star power with a heaping side of never-say-die resilience.” Writes Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune. “The film's real success lies in having Jones as its primary subject, and that's because she's a wickedly funny, fierce, phenomenal force of nature, a positive, vivacious character whose generosity and charisma touches every single person.” 1:33. Not rated.
