Synopsis

Michael Hutchence came to epitomise the very definition of leather clad sexually magnetic rock front man, but underneath it all he was a poetic and gentle soul. While seducing the world’s most desirable women, his childhood sweetheart remained a life-long confidante until the day he died. His famously uninhibited stage performances were only made possible when protecting himself from the audience in a myopic out-of-focus cocoon. The film presents an intimate narrative portrait imbued with authenticity, warmth and humour as Michael’s friends, lovers, band-members, family, collaborators - and Hutchence himself - guide us through a trajectory from unconventional fractured childhood to charismatic, turbulent and ultimately tragic public stardom; the quintessential Rock God.
