"Marley" Movie Miami Premier gives a candid insight into the Reggae Superstar.

Cedella Marley - Marley Movie"Marley" premier took place at The Colony Theatre, Miami Beach on April 9, 2012. Cedella Marley was presented a proclamation from Miami Beach City Commissions Michael Gongora declaring April 9, BOB MARLEY DAY on Miami Beach.

The movie “Marley” was directed by Academy Award winner Kevin MacDonald. His movies include “One Day in September”, “The Last King of Scotland” and “A Day in the Life.”

It is the story of Robert Nesta Marley’s rise to stardom to become a reggae legend. The movie depicted Bob Marley from a youth, including the trials and tribulations he overcame, being the offspring of a white father and black mother. It explained how he was always “different” even as a child and the candid interviews of the people who knew him best gave insight into his life.

Included in the movie is rare footage of the chaotic events surrounding the 1976 attempt on Bob’s life when gunmen came to 56 Hope Road, just days before he was to perform on the “Smile Jamaica” Concert. In 1978 the “One Love Peace Concert” was held at the National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica. Also included in the movie was the clip of Bob Marley joining hands of political rivals Michael Manley (PNP) and Edward Seaga (JLP) at this event.

The movie had full support of the Marley family. The exclusive footage of Rita Marley, Ziggy Marley, Cedella Marley, Bunny Wailer, Neville Garrick, Allan Skill Cole and many others persons close to Bob, gave the viewers a better understanding of the life of this reggae superstar.

“Marley” will be released tomorrow in theatres, on demand and on Facebook. This is a ‘must see’ for all Marley fans!

Lots of new 411 that many people did not know. As the GONG said "Look into the future and realize". To all the people who living wrong bob asks, "are you satisfied with the life you are living" & wont you help him sing these songs of freedom.. (BOB LIVES FOREVER & FOREVER) so it is written so let it be done.

Nice review GAIL. The movie was phenomenal, and it proves that BOB MARLEY was the REAL DEAL as far as living up to the rules of Ras Tafari.
He is the best all around artist and healer of the planet of all time.

This movie is a must see, and must own *
