The late Marvin Hamlisch, the musical genius behind hits such as ‘The Way We Were’ and ‘Nobody Does it Better’, plus countless Oscar-winning soundtracks, was destined for greatness at a ridiculously young age. At six years old he already attended music school and by 31 he’d won two Oscars.

Charting his rapid ascension from a child prodigy to becoming the toast of Broadway, Hamlisch’s famous friends recount his greatest hits, and his occasional misses, with fondness and admiration. Featuring exclusive archive material of Hamlisch himself as well as candid interviews with Barbara Streisand, Woody Allen, Liza Minnelli and Quincy Jones, amongst others, director Dori Berinstein creates a heartfelt and humorous tribute to one of the most talented composers in the history of screen and stage.
