Lowdown: Arguably one of the best opening night films at Sundance ever, "Stardom" is an entertaining documentary focusing on the little known back up singers who are responsible for some of the greatest hits in rock and pop history. Not only does Neville showcase their (still) amazing voices, but chronicles how some didn't get the solo careers they deserved and how others just didn't want the spotlight. But, lord, these ladies can sing.
