A new film recalling David Bowie’s first-ever US publicity tour in 1971, which helped birth Ziggy Stardust.
Via Consequence of Sound:
Bowie (played by Johnny Flynn) slowly undergoes a transformation into otherworldly alter ego Ziggy Stardust. Guiding him on this path is his Mercury Records press person Rob Oberman (Marc Maron), one of the few label employees to really believe in his music and potential. Bowie’s first wife Angie (Jena Malone) also offers him uplifting pep talks..
…Directed by British filmmaker Gabriel Range using a script from Christopher Bell, Stardust hasn’t received approval from Bowie’s family, and thus won’t feature any of the legend’s original music. The movie hits theaters and VOD on November 25.
