How can one rock band be successful, underrated, hugely influential, and criminally overlooked all at the same time?

Directed by Edgar Wright, this unique documentary takes a musical odyssey through five weird and wonderful decades with brothers Ron & Russell Mael, celebrating the inspiring legacy of Sparks: your favourite band's favourite band. 

Featuring commentary from many famous faces and fans of Sparks, including: Flea, Jane Wiedlin, Beck, Jack Antonoff, Jason Schwartzman, Neil Gaiman and more.
