The new trailer for the Amy Winehouse documentary promises heartbreak

New, 11 comments

Director Asif Kapadia's new documentary, Amy, follows the rise and tragic fall of singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse, and it promises to be every bit as heart-wrenching as can possibly be expected. Using archival footage and interviews with Winehouse's loved ones, Kapadia aimed to give a clearer picture of who Winehouse was before her death — a talented and happy young singer who fell into a slow spiral after fame consumed her, all while the world watched. It looks like he succeeded; the film is already getting rave reviews at Cannes, and will premiere in the States on July 10th.
