Nothing Compares Sinéad O'Connor
The extraordinary early career of Sinéad O’Connor is covered in the fascinating documentary, Nothing Compares.
Focusing on the years 1987-1993, the film looks at her troubled upbringing, her first steps into music, the meteoric rise she enjoyed after the release of her legendary single Nothing Compares 2 U, and the very public protests that put her in the crosshairs of a cruel tabloid media.
What emerges is a testament to a brilliant artist and impassioned activist, as well as an insight into a woman who had to navigate devastating personal trauma and intense public scrutiny. Director Kathryn Ferguson also elegantly examines contemporary Irish history through the prism of O’Connor’s life and career – all serving as a reminder of why O’Connor is one of Ireland’s most vital and enduring voices.
