Marley is the definitive life story of the musician, revolutionary, and legend, from his early days to his rise to international superstardom. Made with the support of the Marley family, the film features rare footage, incredible performances and revelatory interviews with the people that knew him best.

  • Cast:
"Macdonald, returning to traditional docu territory after last year's interactive experiment Life in a Day, possesses the right blend of stylistic muscularity and pop sensibility for the project, indulging mythology to some extent while mining just enough tangy sociopolitical context to steer the proceedings clear of hagiography. Linear in structure but knotty with detail, courtesy of a broad array of talking, occasionally conflicting, heads, Marley should be thorough enough to stimulate both the uninformed and the devoted."
Guy Lodge - VARIETY

"Marley, an ambitious and comprehensive film, does what is probably the best possible job of documenting an important life."
Roger Ebert - CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

"The director, Kevin Macdonald, searches for clarity amid the contradictions of Marley's life and reaches no conclusions, but that's a tribute to his subject's complexity in a film of fascinating too-muchness."
Joe Morgenstern - THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
