Mr. Blue Sky: The Story of Jeff Lynne and ELO is not just an illuminating and entertaining new documentary about one of popular music’s greatest stories never told. It’s a kind of mystery movie that once and for all explains an enduring musical mystery: who is this man, Jeff Lynne, and how has he had such a tremendous musical influence on our world? The answer--as told by Lynne himself and such distinguished collaborators and friends of Jeff as Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Tom Petty, Joe Walsh, Olivia and Dhani Harrison, Barbara Orbison and Eric Idle--is that Lynne is a true man of music for whom the recording studio is his greatest instrument. Written and directed by Martyn Atkins, Mr. Blue Sky: The Story of Jeff Lynne and ELO sheds new light on both this witty, gifted, yet humble artist, and the singularly accomplished and beloved art through which he continues to speak to the world so powerfully.
