In 2003, the female country band, The Dixie Chicks, are at the top of their game being one of the most successful bands of all time. However with the US invasion of Iraq about to begin over frustrated worldwide objections about this needless war, one of the Chick vents off the cuff in concert about being ashamed of US President George W. Bush. This statement sparks a firestorm of organized and personal right wing attacks against the Chicks for daring to think they have the right to express a negative personal opinion about the President. This film covers the band's effort to ride out the turmoil that would leave their careers under a cloud, but would eventually give them a opportunity to grow as great artists who bow to no one.

Being a fan of the Dixie Chicks I wanted to see this, and certainly wasn't disappointed. Fascinating how much trauma they went through for what was a very small, rather silly, throwaway statement.... Read more

Good true story and just shows you what the Americans are like - sad. One word in the wronge place and they can turn your life upside down. Very encouraging also to see people keeping going when surrounded by short sighted people.

This is a doco of the period when the Dixie Chicks said some things that were inappropriate for the times. Although I found it interesting, it was very slow and dull.

Even if you don't appreciate their music, this documentary will hold your attention. There are plenty of amusing human elements to the story that you wouldn't expect from a political story. The tone... Read more
