Blessed Mama's Blurbs: Glen Campbell's I'll Be Me Film Review + Giveaway (Ends 10/25)

Glen Campbell's I'll Be Me Film Review + Giveaway (Ends 10/25)


From the producer of “Walk the Line”…




In 2011, when Glen Campbell was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, he joined forces with his family to fight the biggest battle of his life. Glen and his wife, Kim, made history by going public with the diagnosis – the first time a major American celebrity would share this experience with the world. The Campbell family then embarked on a short “Goodbye Tour,” but the three-week engagement turned into an emotional and triumphant 151-show nationwide tour de force.  

This epic human drama about the undying bond between Glen and Kim, and their unwavering caring for each other, chronicles a story of love, resilience and the power of song. 

GLEN CAMPBELL…I’LL BE ME is the true tale of how America’s greatest country star would not give up his music or his family, against all odds.

The film features those who know and love Glen, including Bruce Springsteen, Bill Clinton, The Edge, Paul McCartney, Jay Leno, Vince Gill, Jimmy Webb, Blake Shelton, Sheryl Crow, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Steve Martin, Chad Smith and Taylor Swift among many others. Rare vintage footage and extraordinary new performances of Glen’s most beloved hits immerse this moving cinematic account in the overwhelming talent of this humble family man. With joy and a tireless sense of humor, Glen and his family live each moment in the present while preparing for the future, all while playing their music to sold out venues on a star spangled voyage spanning the country from Carnegie Hall to the Hollywood Bowl.




Simply amazing. There are no other words I could possibly use to describe this film. Such a courageous and heartwarming piece.

I grew up listening to one of Glen's most popular songs, "Rhinestone Cowboy". Who doesn't know that song? I never knew the man behind the song was not only a singer but was a legend.

The beginning of this film tugged at my heart A LOT. There is nothing better in this world than sitting around in the living room with your loved ones and watching old home videos of when everyone was little and young. Just watching Glen not only tear up but ask his wife questions about who this person was or who that person was... it made me tear up. I love knowing that his wife is a very supportive person and is by his side all throughout his Alzheimer's journey. I also never knew Ashley Campbell was his daughter. Looks like his daughter is following in his footsteps and that is great.

There is no history in my family of Alzheimer's but that's not to say it won't ever happen. Glen has given me hope in the fact that although he has it, he still lives life to the fullest everyday and it shows.

This film was very well made and I was honored to have been given the opportunity to watch it and laugh, cry and even smile with everyone in it.
