Synopsis

MUSIC, FAME AND A LIFELONG FRIENDSHIP.

Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward met in the school playground when they were four. They became international stars, first as a trio, then, for almost three decades, as a duo. After leaving school they lived in the YWCA before they moved into the semi-derelict former Sex Pistols rehearsal room and immersed themselves in Soho's thriving club scene before teaming up with Siobhan Fahey to form Bananarama.

A string of worldwide hits followed, including 'Cruel Summer', 'I Heard a Rumour and 'Venus'. In a male-dominated industry, they were determined to succeed on their own terms and inspired a generation with their music, DIY-style and trailblazing attitudes.

Narrated with humour and authenticity, and filled with never-before-seen photos, Really Saying Something takes us from the early days to the world tours, to party games with George Michael, a close friendship with the Prodigy's Keith Flint, hanging out with Andy Warhol in New York and in 1989, a Guinness World Record for the most worldwide chart entries of any all-female group. As well as the highs, Sara and Keren speak frankly about the flip-side of fame, revealing their personal struggles, and the challenges of juggling family life and a demanding professional schedule.

Really Saying Something is the story of two friends who continue to pursue their dreams their way - and have a great time doing it. It is a celebration of determination and a lifelong friendship, with an unbeatable soundtrack.
