Although I have always loved his music, Ron Howard’s sublime documentary “Pavarotti”, about the same-named world-famous tenor, was a delightful treat and glimpse into his private life before his untimely death in 2007. Spanning from his childhood on, this movie pulls no punches and talks intimately about its subject, speaking to family members, friends, colleagues, and more. In one particularly compelling bit, his ex-wife speaks on his infidelity and its aftermath, revealing her ultimate forgiveness and ability to move on from tragedy. Of course, his soaring voice and ebullient smile shine the brightest in this wonderful film.
