Searching for Sugar Man: A Musical Mystery

In 1968, a young musician burst on the scene. Like Dylan, he was a poet. Like The Beatles, his music captured the lyrical nature of the times.

Some thought he was the next big thing.
Then he disappeared.

The musician's name is Rodriguez. And before he vanished, he'd become a cult figure in Apartheid South Africa.

And so, it was a small group of South Africans who set out to discover what happened to him.

Searching for Sugarman is a gripping mystery and an auditory delight.

It's a must-see movie and that's all The Movie Slut will say. Oh, one suggestion. Don't read any reviews that might give away the ending.
