The history of music is as varied as it is vibrant. There may be no finer example of that vibrancy than the electric guitar. It Might Get Loud
is a celebration of the instrument. The film follows three of the most influential guitarists of the last 50 years: Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page, U2’s The Edge, and Jack White, and it explores their own personal histories and relationships with the instrument. Equal parts documentary, live performance, and character study, It Might Get Loud
is as riveting a film as the instrument it celebrates.
