Miss Sharon Jones (2016)

This is a brutally candid documentary about the R&B singer, Sharon Jones, who died in November 2016 from pancreatic cancer.  It is an engaging and sad story that hints at the chaos of cancer and its management.  It is unclear to me how much the medical treatment helped her, although the initial Whipple surgery certainly bought her some time.
