    As a musical experience, it is generous and moving. But as a documentary, “Sing Me the Songs” is an awkward hybrid of concert film and rock-star biography.

    Given that the entire show and film is dedicated to McGarrigle, you wish this exquisitely made, undeniably moving family album featured even more of the singer herself.

    There are a handful of moments to entrance a non-fan. When the musicians and singers assemble to sing “Proserpina,” the last song McGarrigle ever wrote, with its haunting refrain (“Come home to Mama”), the effect is transcendent.

    This film is profoundly beautiful.
    I (quite ignorantly) did not know Kate McGarrigle or her music before and only watched it beacuse I adore the Wainwright siblings, but in the end, I cried for her along with all those on the concert stage...which is a lie, because I actually cried the whole time.
    Amazing.
