Movie Info

Throughout his three-decade career as a founding member of and bassist for The Rolling Stones, Bill Wyman was known to the world as the "quiet one" in the band. Now, the famously private music legend speaks out about his extraordinary life and experiences as part of "the greatest rock and roll band in the world." Opening up his vast personal archive-a lifetime's worth of previously unseen home movies, photographs, and memorabilia-Wyman reflects on his early years with The Stones, the band's meteoric rise to fame, and his search for a sense of "normalcy" amidst the whirlwind of sex, drugs, and rebellion. Endearingly humble and down-to-earth, Wyman pulls back the curtain to offer a one-of-a-kind perspective on life as a reluctant rock star.

  • Once the quiet one, always the quiet one.

  • Unfortunately, it might have made for a better movie if its subject had opened up something more than just his attic.

  • The Quiet One is a modest film about a modest man and benefits enormously from Mr. Wyman's apparent obsessive-compulsive drive to collect, record and photograph.

  • Play simple, sure. But "The Quiet One" could have used a lot more complexity.

    Jun 27, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The hubbub of his Stones years now long in the past, Wyman looks back and remembers, quietly.

    Jun 25, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The Quiet One is Wyman's journey, and because of that the documentary is intimate and personal, but by the same token it is also highly selective in what it shows and acknowledges.
