Film Description:
"Quebec-born singing sisters Kate and Anna McGarrigle enjoy international acclaim--for their inimitable style, their talent as songwriters and especially for their unassuming, informal selves! With sister Jane as business manager, Kate and Anna continue to confound the 'experts' by achieving success on their own terms. Artist and filmmaker Caroline Leaf, with camera and sketchbook in hand, captures some of these qualities so endearing to McGarrigle fans. The result is an easygoing, sometimes whimsical portrait of the famous sisters on and off stage. Highlights include excerpts from their concert at Carnegie Hall and a look at the songwriting and recording process, McGarrigle style!"
