Sinead O’Connor was not the first or last female pop star to be adored and
demonised with equal vigor. Focusing on a five-year period between 1987 and
1992, Kathryn Ferguson’s documentary shows us the artistry and emotion
behind a trailblazing artist made controversial because of her refusal to
compromise. The film covers her miserable upbringing, rise to pop stardom
and forced exile from an industry determined to box her into something she
was never going to be.
