If You’re a Fan of the Police (And Really, Who Isn’t) Then ‘Can’t Stand Losing You’ is a Must-See

  • Length: 83 min
  • Director: Andy Grieve, Lauren Lazin
  • Producer: Andy Summers, William J. Immerman, Nicolas Cage, Norman Golightly, Brett Morgen, Bob Yari

Based on the acclaimed memoir One Train Later by rock guitarist Andy Summers, Can’t Stand Losing You: Surviving the Police follows Summers' journey from his early days in the psychedelic ‘60s music scene, when he played with The Animals, to chance encounters with drummer Stewart Copeland and bassist Sting, which led to the formation of a new wave trio, The Police. During the band’s phenomenal rise and its dissolution at the height of their popularity in the mid-80s, Summers captured history with his candid photographs. Utilizing rare archival footage and insights from the guitarist’s side of the stage, Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving the Police brings together past and present as the band members reunite, more than two decades later, for a global reunion tour in 2007.

"This is a fun, sassy and poignant movie. Directed and cut - by the extraordinary Andy Grieve – ‘Can't Stand Losing You’ is a dream you want to remember after you wake up. And, like every good dream, the harder you try, the more you recall tough moments that lead to real insight. It's directed like good rock n' roll: with rhythm and power and a wink on the offbeat."
- Alex Gibney

"Frames the English musician's fascinating backstory with exclusive concert footage and behind-the-scenes access…If you're a fan of The Police (and really, who isn't?), then 'Can't Stand Losing You' is a must-see."
– Nigel M. Smith, Indiewire
