Early Years Documentary 'Madonna and the Breakfast Club' First Trailer
"She wanted to be out there. She wanted her songs to be sung." The Orchard has debuted an official trailer for an indie documentary titled Madonna and the Breakfast Club, which is already available to watch on VOD as of this week. The film tells the "incredible untold story" of pop icon Madonna's struggling pre-fame years in New York, with her first band "Breakfast Club", leading up to her first solo record deal. The band was formed in 1979, and at one point featured Madonna as the drummer. Dan Gilroy, who sang lead vocals, was also briefly Madonna's boyfriend, and he eventually allowed her to sing. Madonna ultimately left to form a new band with avant garde artist Mark Frazier, Emmy and the Emmys. In this film, Jamie Auld stars as Madonna in extended recreation scenes. This looks like a VH1 special, but some fans might enjoy it.
