NOTHING COMPARES is the story of Sinéad O’Connor's phenomenal rise to worldwide fame and how her iconoclastic personality resulted in her exile from the pop mainstream. Focusing on her prophetic words and deeds from 1987-1993, the film reflects on the legacy of this fearless trailblazer through a contemporary feminist lens.
Nothing Compares was the opening film at Docs Ireland, and screened at festivals all over the world, including In Competition at Sundance 2022.
"The most potent film about the travails of a woman in the pop industry since Asif Kapadia’s 2016 Oscar-winning Amy" - Neil McCormick, The Telegraph
