Synopsis by Mark Deming

Proud son of Canada Neil Young returns home for a special concert in this documentary directed by Jonathan Demme. Raised in Winnipeg, Young was born in Toronto, and while touring North America in 2011 in support of his album Le Noise, he played a solo show at Massey Hall in Toronto, one of the nation's most prestigious venues. Demme and a camera crew were on hand to document the performance (with the sound crew using a new high-resolution, digital-recording process designed under Young's supervision), and Neil Young Journeys features the artist alone with his guitars and keyboards, playing a rich variety of material from his songbook, ranging from iconic hits to selections from Le Noise and some brand-new material. Demme also joins Young for a road trip through Ontario, as he visits landmarks from his youth and recalls what once was as well as commenting on what is. Neil Young Journeys was Jonathan Demme's third feature-length documentary on Young, following 2006's Neil Young: Heart of Gold and 2009's Neil Young Trunk Show.
