The new documentary about singer Linda Ronstadt is resonating with moviegoers, to the tune of $686,000.
That's how much Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice made over the weekend (actually $686,370, to be precise), according to audience measurement company comScore.
Oscar-winning filmmakers Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman directed the film about the music icon, who has recorded an incredible number of hits songs including "Blue Bayou," "Desperado," "You're No Good," "Don't Know Much," "Willin'" and "Still Within the Sound of My Voice," among many others.
There's a purity to her voice. That's what we all respond to. And whatever she's singing it's coming from something that's so deeply felt with her.
Linda Ronstadt expanded to 220 screens this weekend, up from just seven in its opening weekend. The two-week theatrical gross for the film stands at $841,613, per comScore.
