From a modest room in Queens, New York to the top of the charts: Cyndi Lauper’s rapid rise is like a Hollywood movie plot. We have never got this close to the highly-talented and charismatic artist before. Alison Ellwood’s captivating portrait uses interviews, some of which have never been seen before, and archive footage to give us intimate insights into the life of the women’s rights and LGBTIQ activist. Eva Weinmann
