Synopsis by Mark Deming
Badfinger was a rock band that got the sort of break any band would envy -- they were signed by the Beatles to their record company, Apple, and got to work with both Paul McCartney and George Harrison. The group scored a handful of brilliant pop hits, including "Day After Day," "Baby Blue," and "No Matter What." However, within a decade of their big break, Badfinger was drowning in debt and desperately trying to free themselves from a bad management deal; the strain was so great that two of the founding members took their own lives. This documentary traces both the triumphs and the tragedies of this great, underappreciated rock band. The documentary is also available in director's cut and special edition director's cut formats.
