Here’s one…

Still Bill

This 2009 documentary traces the career of singer-songwriter Bill Withers, who composed and recorded such timeless classics as “Lean On Me” and “Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone.” In 1985, Withers more or less walked away from the music industry, grateful for the degree of success he had achieved, and content to enjoy life with his family, away from the spotlight. In one scene, at a special event, Withers meets a group of children who, like he did as a child, stutter. Withers dropped out of ninth grade in part because of his stuttering, and eventually received speech therapy while he was in the Navy. The children sing Withers a song, and he’s moved to tears, reminded of how far he has come. It’s one of many powerful yet understated moments in movies that tells the story of a great American songwriter who happens to be still Bill.

The rest are here.
