It was only a matter of time before David Bowie got the big screen treatment, and now, Stardust is here!
Tracking Bowie as he sets out on his first music tour across the U.S. and creates his legendary alter ego Ziggy Stardust, the biographical drama takes a close look at the life of the music sensation before he became a worldwide cultural icon. While many know the legacy of the music icon, few know of his humble beginnings.
The official synopsis of the movie reads: “Meet David before Bowie. One of the greatest icons in music history. But who was the young man behind the many faces? In 1971, a 24-year-old David Bowie (Flynn) embarks on his first road trip to America with Mercury Records publicist Ron Oberman (Marc Maron), only to be met with a world not yet ready for him. ‘Stardust’ offers a glimpse behind the curtain of the moments that inspired the creation of Bowie’s first and most memorable alter ego, Ziggy Stardust, capturing the turning point that cemented his career as one of the world’s greatest cultural icons.”
