Gilbert O'Sullivan: Out on his Own

2010, 52 minutes

This film gives us a fascinating insight into the life and creative impulses of this unique solo music man. While spending time with him a this home in Jersey, as he tours and records in Israel, London and Nashville we travel into the world of a complex and often difficult artists allowing us to witness some of the highs and lows faced by a performer whom many critics perceive to be past it.

Never before has O'Sullivan given this sort of access to a documentary crew allowing the viewer a rare insight into the private world of this often controversial man.

This is an engrossing and witty portrait of an outspoken performer who refuses to retire, absolutely certain of his own value, ready to take on all critics, single-minded and oddly engaging.

A Wildfire Films production for RTE
