The film’s release coincides with that of the album, which NME gave five stars.
The review said: “A powerful synthesis of past and present, ‘Letter To You’ shows us the strength that can be found in sorrow. The result is Springsteen’s finest album since 2002’s ‘The Rising’.”
Letter To You is available to watch on Apple TV+ now.
