The Toronto International Film Festival has landed the first screening of Showtime's Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars. The movie will premier during the fest in September and is slated to be available on Showtime itself in 2018. The film takes a very personal approach to unveiling details about a quite private and somewhat reclusive guitar legend. Clapton himself speaks to some of difficult periods of his life, including a far from harmonious childhood, his struggles with substance abuse and the tragic loss of his young son. Clapton's up front approach to the project allowed producers to sort through a considerable amount of archived material and media, and were even given access to personal letters and diaries.
