Director Mat Whitecross, who previously made the music-heavy dramas Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll and Spike Island, turns back the clock to the 1990s to explore the rise of the band Oasis in this affectionate documentary. Drawing on a wealth of archive footage and revealing home videos, plus narration from brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher, Supersonic charts the siblings' meteoric rise from the council estates of Manchester to the top of the charts and their adrenaline-fuelled performances in some of the UK's biggest venues, including Knebworth in 1996. The fractious relationship between Liam and Noel is touched upon, but the Britpop tussle with Blur and the band's slow decline in the late 1990s and early noughties are left for another film to cover in depth.
