A movie about the resurgence of a country-music superstar is next up at the Milton Film Forum.

Trailblazing, hell-raising country music legend Tanya Tucker defied the standards of how a woman in country music was supposed to behave.

Decades after she slipped from the spotlight, rising Americana music star Brandi Carlile takes it upon herself to write an entire album for her hero based on Tucker’s extraordinary life, spurring the greatest comeback in country music history.

The Return of Tanya Tucker follows Tucker’s richly-creative, utterly-captivating, bumpy ride back to the top as Carlile encourages her to push past her fears to create a new sound and reach a new audience.

“The writing, the experimenting, and refining of this new music mixes with all that came before – using rare archival footage and photographs to delve into Tanya’s history, beginning in a single wide trailer in Seminole, Texas,” according to the filmmaker.

The movie is being shown Wednesday, April 12, at 7:30 p.m. at FirstOntario Arts Centre in Milton.
