Stones In Exile
is a documentary following the lives of the Stones as they recorded their famous and probably most popular studio album, Exile On Main Street
in the early 70s. Having left Britain for tax reasons, they migrated to the south of France to record, but could not find a suitable studio and hence ended up recording most of the album in the basement of Keith's rented mansion, Nellcote. The hour-long film features footage from Cocksucker Blues
and Ladies and Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones
, and interviews with the Stones themselves and others like Jack White, producer Don Was and Martin Scorsese.
