As a musician and songwriter, Townes Van Zandt was legendary, inspiring artists from Bob Dylan to Norah Jones. In the years since his death in 1997, he has become widely respected as one of the greatest American songwriters of his, or any, generation. Be Here to Love Me chronicles the fascinating and often turbulent life of Townes Van Zandt with a simple unpredictability that mimics the way the artist lived his short life. Directed by Margaret Brown, this haunting and lyrical film combines emotional interviews with Van Zandt's immediate family and such luminaries as Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett, Steve Earle, Guy Clark and Steve Shelley with rare footage of Van Zandt at home and on the stage. ***May not be shrinkwrapped.
