Paramount Pictures and Showtime Documentary Films present the Sinead O’Connor documentary, Nothing Compares.

Love her or hate her, Sinead O’Connor has been an incredible influence on the music industry. Her most famous track is ‘Nothing Compares 2 U.’ The song was a phenomenal number one single and is still highly regarded today. But with her success as a singer came the controversy that followed her. Tearing up a photograph of Pope John Paul II live on TV, an action that enraged Frank Sinatra. And her training in and comments on religious matters, she hasn’t been too far from the headlines.

Now, Paramount Pictures and Showtime Documentary films are releasing a documentary about the Irish singer. Entitled ‘Nothing Compares’, it follows her from the height of stardom to her exile from mainstream pop. Due for release in UK cinemas on October 7th, the first trailer and poster for the documentary have been released:


Directed by Kathryn Ferguson (Taking the Waters, Space to Be), NOTHING
COMPARES charts Sinéad OʼConnorʼs phenomenal rise to worldwide fame and
examines how she used her voice at the height of her stardom, before her iconoclastic
personality led to her exile from the pop mainstream.

Focusing on O’Connor’s prophetic words and deeds from 1987 to 1993, the film
presents an authoritative, richly cinematic portrait of this fearless artist through a
contemporary feminist lens.

Belfast-born Ferguson is an innovative and boundary-pushing director. NOTHING
COMPARES is her documentary feature directorial debut and was an official selection in
the World Cinema Documentary Competition at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this
year. The film has gone on to win various awards at film festivals this year, including
Best Irish Documentary at Galway Film Fleadh, the Audience Award for Best
Documentary at Aegean Film Festival, and the Audience Award at Docs Ireland.


“Nothing Compares” will be in UK cinemas from October 7th.
