CLOSING NIGHT: It’s all about the harmony for the British-born, Australian-raised Gibb brothers—Robin, Barry, Maurice, and later on, Andy—who came to fame as the Bee Gees. Frank Marshall’s infectiously watchable film is a trip through their life and times, through their highs and lows. With harmonies as tight as their signature pants, the Bee Gees’ star ascended in the mid '60s, only to wane in the early '70s, their tours reduced to backwater bars. But then came Saturday Night Fever, that iconic, era-defining film-and their extraordinary soundtrack. The Bee Gees were back, and doing more than just Stayin' Alive. The eventual decline of disco found the multitalented brothers turn to producing and songwriting for the likes of Barbra Streisand and Dionne Warwick. What emerges in Marshall’s definitive Bee Gees story are their breathtaking talents, and a reminder of their amazing songbook. This is a foot-tapping, sing-a-long anthem of a film, filled with soaring falsetto harmonies-and isn’t that just what we need, right now?
