Wham! (Netflix) -- Documentary on 1980s pop group







In 1982, the best of friends and still teenagers - George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley as WHAM! set out to conquer the world.By June of 1986 they played their very last gig at Wembley Stadium having done exactly that. Now for the very first time, told in their own words, the amazing story of how in four years they dominated the charts around the world with timeless and classic pop songs. Hit after hit - Club Tropicana, Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, Freedom, I’m Your Man and of course Last Christmas.

Their time in the spotlight was white-hot, becoming the very first western pop act to play in China.It was a time that both encapsulated and epitomised not just their youth, but also those of the many millions of fans that adored them. WHAM! is a feature length documentary that captures this magical time, from director Chris Smith (Tiger King, Sr.) and producers John Battsek (The Deepest Breath) and Simon Halfon (Supersonic) With unprecedented access to both George and Andrew’s personal archive including remarkable and never-before-seen footage, alongside rare, candid and previously unheard interviews, WHAM! charts their incredible journey from school friends to superstars.




Premieres July 5th.

Watched it today and it was fantastic. It's amazing what they accomplished in only 4 years.

Wow I agree this documentary was excellent. So well edited and I’m amazed how they managed to use actual sound bites from Michael and Ridgely as the narrators. That was pretty cool. The old footage was pretty cool to see. There was a lot of their early career that I didn’t know about until I watched this.

Andrew and Yorg accomplished so much in so little time. They seemed to have a really great friendship.

Finally got a chance to watch this yesterday.

While it avoids many of the issues the band encountered during their meteoric rise, it remains an absolutely nostalgic and breezy viewing.
