The Olivier and Tony award-winning West End and Broadway hit musical charts the life of Carole King long before she became a chart-topping music legend.

An ordinary girl with an extraordinary talent, King fought her way into the record business as a teenager and sold her first hit, Will You Love Me Tomorrow, when she was just 17. By the time she reached her twenties she was part of one of history’s most successful hit song-writing teams with husband Gerry Goffin and fellow writers and best friends,Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann. Together they wrote hits for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll; from Aretha Franklin to The Monkees, The Drifters to The Shirelles but it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice.

 Written by Douglas McGrath and directed byMarc Bruni, Beautiful features such classics as (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman, Take Good Care of My Baby, You’ve Got a Friend, Up on the Roof and The Locomotion.
