Amy Official Trailer
Hope that everyone has their tissues near, because this trailer for The Amy Winehouse Documentary Is Really Heartbreaking an Haunting. I really liked her a lot and this documentary makes me miss her even more. I’m gonna go grab myself some tissues,now, if you’ll excuse me…
Four years after Winehouse’s death from alcohol poisoning in 2011, “Amy” is a moving portrait of the artist as a young woman, with previously unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks from her recording career.
This documentary is the work of director Asif Kapadia, who gained access to an unprecedented amount of unreleased and private material in order to make a film that tells Amy’s story largely through her eyes and in her own words.
Also of interest: According to a review from Variety, “Amy” also connects the dots in new ways when it comes to identifying contributing factors in the singer’s decline and death, which might explain why her family has already spoken out in criticism of the film.)
Even in trailer form, “Amy” is simultaneously fascinating and difficult to watch, knowing how it has to end.
“Amy” debuted at the Cannes Film Festival this month to rave reviews and a standing ovation.
