As a band, Sparks has been around since the early 1970s. But as a partnership, Ron and Russell Mael, being the brothers they are, have been together for almost their entire lives. Fifty years later, they’re getting a lot of on-screen attention. Not only have they written the well-received film Annette, they’re also the subjects of a new documentary film, The Sparks Brothers. The movie’s director, Edgar Wright, told us this wasn’t just another job for him, because he’s been a fan of the band since — well, since as long as he can remember!
