Entertainment Reviews:

4 stars out of 4 -- You needn't be a fan of the Chicks to be absorbed in the drama of the boycotts, protests, and threats that followed the remark, or to appreciate the group's unity and resolve throughout.

4 stars out of 5 -- [T]his remains a remarkably candid account of a high-flying band going into freefall overnight -- and dealing with it.
Aug 1, 2007
The film's generous helpings of the Dixie Chicks' music culminate with thrilling performances of 'The Long Way Around' and 'Not Ready to Make Nice' from the recent album....The group has never sounded more vital and engaged.

3.5 stars out of 4 -- [T]he camera focuses on the Chicks as wives, mothers, entertainers and political flash points. Their fight to stay uncompromised is inspiring.

Product Description:

This documentary captures the female country-&-western group the Dixie Chicks in performance around the U.S. and London between the years 2003 and 2006. While performing in 2003, singer Natalie Maines ignited a maelstrom of controversy and red-state outrage when she declared--from a London stage on the eve of the Iraqi conflict--that she was ashamed that President George W. Bush was from her home state of Texas. When a rabidly right-wing group picked up on it, the band found themselves in the center of controversy regarding the nature of patriotism, freedom of speech, feminism, and the split between pro- and anti-war Americans. Filmmaker Barbara Kopple brings us the fly-on-the-wall view of the next three years, capturing Haines and sisters Emily Robison and Martie Maguire in dressing rooms, on stage, and in recording studios, bonding with each other, their families, producer Rick Rubin, and their supportive manager, Simon Renshaw. Through the crises, they keep their sense of humor and sisterhood, not backing down from their liberal stance, and turning the backlash into a triumph. They also make some great music, and the film includes plenty of riveting, intense footage of the band in performance onstage and in the studio. Among the faces appearing in archival footage are President Bush, Bill Maher, and right-wing country star Toby Keith.
