Rock documentary capturing what was advertised as legendary rock group The Band’s final farewell concert appearance. Joined on stage by more than a dozen special guests, including Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Muddy Waters and Joni Mitchell, The Last Waltz started as a concert, but it became a celebration.

Interspersed with candid discussions between director Scorsese and members of The Band, The Last Waltz has been called 'the greatest rock concert movie ever made - and maybe the best rock movie, period'.
