Set against the backdrop of the 1990s Bosnian War, particularly the horrors of the Seige of Sarajevo, this documentary is a moving and ultimately stand-up-and-cheer effort. Co-produced by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, it delves into how the underground music scene helped raise awareness of the atrocities and then accelerated once the war caught the attention of U2 in the middle of their ZooTV tour. Interviews with everyone from Bono to Bill Clinton to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour lend not only credence to the film but also a top-shelf perspective. It’s a fascinating look at the power of music and the people who love it.

3.5/5 stars
