Solely responsible for his primary school-age daughter, and managing a vicious relationship with crystal meth, Brian sought solace in the one place he never thought he could belong. Church. Armed with an addict’s zeal, he walked away from a $23M record deal to launch himself into single-fatherhood and religion with equal abandon. Told with intimate access to the family and band, this genre-bending documentary delivers unprecedented access to one of rock’s most unbelievable stories of restoration.
The previously untold story of one of the world’s greatest artists and why her name was nearly lost to history. Many Beautiful Things plunges viewers into the complex age of Victorian England to meet Lilias Trotter, a daring young woman who defied all norms by winning the favour of England’s top art critic, John Ruskin. In an era when women were thought incapable of producing high art, Ruskin promised that her work could be ‘immortal’.

As Lilias journeys to French Algeria in the late 1800’s to pioneer work with women and children, viewers are left to wonder, could you abandon a dream to pursue your true calling?
