This remarkable documentary tells the life story of the late singer/songwriter Amy Winehouse. Using a variety of film footage – archive, mobile phone, news, home video – we are with Amy from shy young teenager awkwardly messing around at parties, to international sensation and her struggles with fame, eating disorders and addiction. With contributions from a wide range of people close to Amy, as well as an effective filmmaking device of overlaying visuals with many of her lyrics, the result is both vibrant and intimate. All the while, her extraordinary voice is heard throughout, resulting in a sombre but heartfelt tribute to one of the 21st century’s most significant cultural figures.
Very strong language, strong drug references.
