For a film that appears to have unfettered access to the band Kings of Leon, Stephen C. Mitchell's "Talihina Sky: The Story of Kings of Leon" offers little cohesive insight into either the band or the forces that shaped the group and their music. The members of Kings of Leon -- brothers Caleb, Nathan, and Jared Followill, along with their cousin Matthew -- were first catapulted into the public eye in the U.K., and mainstream American success wouldn't come until 2008's Only by the Night. Mitchell's documentary seems to have been made at some point during those key years, and zeroes in on a Talihina, Oklahoma family reunion (the band members hail from Mt. Juliet, Tennessee).
