Once Were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and The Band is a confessional, cautionary, and occasionally humorous tale of Robertson's young life and the creation of one of the most enduring groups in the history of popular music, The Band.

The film is a moving story of Robertson's per­sonal journey, overcoming adversity and finding camaraderie alongside the four other men who would become his brothers in music, together making their mark on music history.

Once Were Brothers blends rare archival footage, photography, iconic songs and interviews with Robertson's friends and collaborators including Martin Scorsese, Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, and more.

Critic Reviews:

  • " It's a bracing journey filled with wonderful anecdotes and splendid footage, and it is, emphatically, Robbie Robertson telling the story of The Band, from his perspective. " – John Doyle (Globe and Mail)
  • " One of the most entertaining cautionary tales in recent memory, a quality that is likely to land it on a host of top film lists (mine included). " – David Lamble (Bay Area Reporter)
  • " Even at its most painful, the Band's story captures something golden, incendiary and wistfully beautiful – “so beautiful,” Robertson reflects, “that it went up in flames.” " – Ann Hornaday
