   This movie is rated PG-13 so almost all friends and family can go experience it together. The top three characters you should know are Bob Marley (Kingsley Ben-Adir), Rita Marley (Lashana Lynch), and Ziggy Marley (“Shark Tale”).

   All the actors they picked for these roles did an amazing job acting and telling the story.

   This movie is about Bob Marley but mainly about his music Career. The story starts in 1976 when he was just singing and making songs for fun with his friends and family, dreaming one day he would become big. He did!

   Bob Marley was a very unselfish person who made the world and people a better place through his music.

   Before his first tour at ‘Smile Jamaica,” a free concert organization in effort to diffuse tension and make peace. On December 3, gunmen attack Bob, Rita his wife, and a singer from the band.

   After that awful incident, he still went on to sing for many tours and kept producing music, because that is what he loved to do. He brought peace into this world through music which people understood and could relate to.

   The movie takes us through all the ups and downs throughout his music career. He succeeded so much! We also get to see a little of his family and friends and how they support him through the whole thing.

   I honestly think if you haven’t seen this movie, yet you should definitely go and watch it! It’s great to watch with family, friends, or even by yourself.
