Ella Fitzgerald: Just One of Those Things (2018)

1h 30m / Not Rated / Biography NOW AVAILABLE TO STREAM AT HOME! This is an arthouse theatrical exclusive, not available on other streaming platforms.

Ella Fitzgerald was a 15 year-old street kid when she won a talent contest in 1934 at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem. Within months she was a star. The new documentary Ella Fitzgerald: Just One of Those Things follows her extraordinary journey over six decades as her sublime voice transforms the tragedies of her own life and the troubles of her times into joy.

The film uses never-before-seen images and unheard interviews with Tony Bennett, Johnny Mathis, Smokey Robinson, Itzhak Perlman, Ella’s son Ray Brown Jr., and others to bring to life the story of a black woman who makes her career in the face of horrifying racism. Here is an Ella the world never knew – tough, thoughtful, funny, a dazzling musical innovator. The film also uncovers Ella’s commitment to the battle for Civil Rights and explores the conflicts that always haunted this intensely private woman: the struggle to reconcile her hunger for adoring audiences with her longing for a domestic life with her husband and son.
