    • Synopsis
    • Charming, intelligent and iconoclastic, Ben Lee is an Australian singer-songwriter whose creative growth since his early adolescence has undergone almost relentless media scrutiny. This is a playful yet deeply intimate portrait of Lee, exploring his meteoric rise to pop stardom and the issues of celebrity and spirituality that arise when launched into the spotlight. Ex-girlfriend Claire Danes and long-time friends Jason Schwartzman, Michelle Williams, Mike D, Zooey Deschanel and Winona Ryder give insight to Lee's almost impenetrable public persona, as well as to his private hopes and insecurities.
