'Songwriter'

Unlike Ed Sheeran's 2015 concert film Jumpers for Goalposts, this concise documentary (directed by his cousin Murray Cummings) drills down on the singer-songwriter's creative process. You'll get to see the superstar, alongside his perpetually energetic producer/sidekick Benny Blanco, amicably working through songs like "Supermarket Flowers” and "Love Yourself" (the latter penned for Justin Bieber) as they go from loose concept to chart-topper. And while there's a palpable lack of tension in watching them thrash out hits – imagine Some Kind of Monster if the monster was Gizmo from Gremlins – diehard fans will enjoy the look behind the curtain on one of the decade's most successful musicians.
