The Lumineers' film "The Ballad of Cleopatra" examines the true life story of a female taxi driver who imparted her wisdom onto the band. Little did he know that not only would what she told him become the heart of The Lumineers’ album Cleopatra, but it would also birth the visual representation of her story, eventually becoming the masterpiece that is The Ballad of Cleopatra.

The melody is Billboard-friendly, but the wistful tale of a bitter, aging woman looking back on her life and loves isn’t usually Billboard’s style. I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my lif. hen I die alone I’ll be on time. With 11 tracks and clocking in at a brisk 35 minutes, Cleopatra feels slight
