Nothing Compares

Powerful documentary finds Sinéad O’Connor ahead of her time ★★★★ ” Kathryn Fe The Guardian

An exploration of Sinead O’Connor’s rise and fall and her enduring cultural impact. By the age of 20, O’Connor was one of Ireland’s brightest rising stars but her decision to use her fame as a platform to speak out on a number of controversial issues shifted her narrative from global stardom to worldwide condemnation. In a new interview, O’Connor reveals the abusive upbringing that left her feeling betrayed by both church and community and ultimately led her to find the therapeutic power of music.

“Sinéad O’Connor broke the mould – she was a nuclear bombshell, an angelic-voiced firebrand and a woman ahead of her time. But she was broken in return.” MIFF
