An intimate narrative portrait, imbued with authenticity, warmth and humour, of the internationally renowned INXS frontman, Michael Hutchence. Michael came to epitomise the very definition of leather-clad sexually magnetic rock frontman, but underneath it all, he was a poetic, multifaceted and intensely sensitive man who struggled with the idea of success and the creative limits of pop. Extraordinary archive footage, personal home movies and intimate insights from Michaelโ€™s friends, lovers, band members, family, collaborators and Hutchence himself guide us through a trajectory from unconventional fractured childhood to a charismatic, turbulent and ultimately tragic public stardom. A feature-length theatrical documentary written and directed by Richard Lowenstein, director of many of Michaelโ€™s hit music videos and the 1986 feature film, Dogs in Space, in which Michael played the lead.
