NOTHING COMPARES charts Sinéad OʼConnorʼs phenomenal rise to worldwide fame, and examines how she used her voice at the height of her stardom before her iconoclastic personality led to her exile from the pop mainstream. Focusing on Sinéad’s prophetic words and deeds from 1987 to 1993, the film presents an authored, richly cinematic portrait of this fearless trailblazer through a contemporary feminist lens.

The archive-led documentary features era-defining music videos and concert performances alongside previously unseen footage from this period. The film is underpinned by a new interview with Sinéad herself, in which she reflects on events in her own words, and from a present-day perspective. Intimate first-hand contributor interviews add to the tapestry with additional insights from contemporary artists, musicians and social commentators introducing broader themes of Irish history, politics and global activism, all the while reflecting on Sinéad’s artistry, impact and legacy.

„Nothing Compares frames its subject’s story through the light of retrospect, while capturing the emotional intensity for O’Connor in those early years of her career.” – The Hollywood Reporter

„A bold re-examination of O’Connor’s all-too-brief window of wider influence, and a searing critique of the sexist and conservative backlash that led to her retreat from public life.” – IndieWire

„Simply more about the Sinéad you already know.” – The Guardian
