When most people think of Bob Marley, what probably comes to mind is reggae,
Jamaica and marijuana. But how did a street urchin raised by a teen-mom in a
country shack with no electricity manage to become a beloved icon admired all
over the world?
That little-known side of Bob’s life story is the subject of Marley, an intimate biopic produced by his son, Ziggy, and directed by Scotsman Kevin Macdonald. Because of the participation in the project of so many relatives, friends and colleagues, the picture paints a fascinating portrait which fully fleshes out its subject, thereby resisting the temptation of merely placing him on a pedestal.
