Stones In Exile

Fortnight 2010, Feature film, 1h01

Synopsis

At the end of the 60s the Stones were at a turning point ­ hounded by the press, battling drug busts, and facing possible financial ruin, the band throws down the gauntlet and decamps to the south of France to begin the most arduous recording sessions of their entire careers for an album that in time will come to be regarded as one of the greatest rock and roll albums ever made. This is the story of the Stones in exile. This is the Stones fighting for their lives. This is the story of the making of Exile on Main Street.
