A HEAD FULL OF DREAMS offers an in-depth and intimate portrait of the band's spectacular rise from the backrooms of Camden pubs to selling out stadiums across the planet. At the heart of the story is the band's unshakeable brotherhood which has endured through many highs and lows. The film is directed by Mat Whitecross - director of Supersonic, the acclaimed 2016 Oasis documentary - who met the four friends at college in London, before they'd even formed the band. From the very first rehearsal in a cramped student bedroom, Whitecross has been there to capture the music and the relationships on tape. Using extensive unseen archive, behind-the-scenes and live footage, A HEAD FULL OF DREAMS sees the band reflect upon their two decades together. It was filmed during Coldplay's record-breaking A Head Full Of Dreams Tour, which was certified as the third biggest tour of all time, playing to more than 5.5 million fans across the world.
The movie was too incredible for words. I absolutely loved everything about it, and it flowed together really well. Somehow, I felt a sense of togetherness with people I'd never met before. It was an entire room filled with other Coldplayers. The month I had to wait for this movie was worth it in the end. I wish they had spent more time talking about the Viva la Vida album, but it's alright. This film was beautiful and breathtaking, and I'm at a loss for words. I've never been so happy about a movie before, but it feels like so much more than that. This was better than anything I could have imagined, and the feeling of finally getting to see this was wonderful. My excitement had been building up, until it exploded into a rush of happiness.
