About the Movie

Do you remember when you forgot about Rick Springfield? This is the story about the people who never did. Some may find the rabid devotion of Rick Springfield's fans perplexing, but if his 17 Top 40 hits, including "Jessie's Girl", or his run on “General Hospital” as Dr. Noah Drake didn't convince you, watching him blast out live performances with straight-on charisma and spontaneously dropping in on fans most certainly will. Somewhere in between the introvert plagued with lifelong depression and the 60-something extrovert who still performs 80 to 100 high-energy concerts a year, lies the real Rick Springfield. “An Affair of the Heart” is a fascinating look at celebrity culture and a soulful examination of the powerful connections that can be shared between fans and artist.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: An agreeable documentary about the pop singer Rick Springfield and his legions of female fans ... – Andy Webster, New York Times, Oct 9, 2012

Fresh: While she creates an affectionate portrait of the charismatic musician, helmer Sylvia Caminer is really concerned with the meaning of fandom; anyone harboring an inexplicable or arcane passion could conceivably be interested. – John Anderson, Variety, Oct 23, 2012

Rotten: Minor curio about Rick Springfield's devoted fan base has less weight than a VH1 Behind the Music special. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Oct 12, 2012

Fresh: It doesn't matter how many of these moments are self-flattering; the subtext is clear enough. – Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out, Oct 9, 2012
