About the Movie
The history behind this recording began in 2012, which was a year of major achievements for Heart. In addition to Ann and Nancy’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and news that they had been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the year was filed with musical accomplishments. Ann and Nancy Wilson combed their archives for a definitive four CD box set release in the early part of the year, and in the fall of 2012, released their “Fanatic” album to strong critical and fan acclaim. To support the release of “Fanatic,” the band embarked upon a major North American headline tour, which ended with a magnificent performance at Caesars Colosseum in Windsor, Ontario, which was filmed by AXS-TV. Heart has long been associated with Canada having broken out in Vancouver in 1976 with the release of “Dreamboat Annie” and their return to Canada for the “Fanatic” tour was greeted with the kind of enthusiasm the Canadians save for their own. Ben Mink, who produced the “Fanatic” CD and is another great musical Canadian musician, joined Ann and Nancy on stage at Windsor, playing fiddle and leading a string ensemble. In addition to songs from the “Fanatic” album which were performed for the first time for the television viewing audience, “Fanatic Live From Caesars Colosseum” also showcases many of Heart's classic hits including “Barracuda,” “Crazy on You,” “These Dreams,” “Alone,” “What About Love,” and many more. Over the group's four-decade history, Heart had different lineups, with the constant center of the group since 1974 being sisters lead singer Ann Wilson and guitarist Nancy Wilson. To date, Heart has sold over 30 million records worldwide, including over 22 million in album sales in the U.S. The group was ranked number 57 on VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock". With Top 10 albums on the Billboard Album Chart in the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and 2010s, Heart is among the most commercially enduring Rock bands in history.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It pales in comparison to the recent epic saga tweeted by Aziah King about two strippers' unapologetic road trip from Detroit to Tampa, Fla., that went viral on the Internet.
Rotten: Despite its non-exploitative approach to its subject, the film... is too schematic and obvious to have the desired impact.
Fresh: Biel turns in a fine performance as the unlikely violent hero, but Mamet excels in a role far different than her Shoshanna on HBO's Girls.
