CINEMA: One Direction: This is Us (PG)
12:59pm Thursday 29th August 2013 in What's On
DIRECTED by Morgan Spurlock of Supersize Me fame, One Direction: This Is Us is the story of five lads – Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson – and their meteoric rise to fame.
Except, sadly, this is not their full story, warts and all.
There’s footage of the boys performing on stage including vaguely pointless graphics, mucking around backstage, winding down post-show on the tour bus and relaxing in their hotel rooms. And yes, at one point we see Styles’ boxer shorts.
We also occasionally see the boys exploring the cities that they fleetingly visit.
When they’re able to, that is. During one trip they are spotted by a group of fans and the boys have to be locked in a shop, protected by the mass of hysterical girls.
Fans feature heavily in Spurlock’s film, as they have done in the boys' careers – never has the phrase ‘We wouldn’t be here without you’ rung so true.
