At the peak of her fame, Amy Winehouse was a controversial figure, and now the documentary about her life is drawing its own controversy. Early reviews have given it high praise, but Winehouse’s family has already slammed its inaccuracies. Honestly, we wouldn’t expect anything less from a film about this incredibly talented and tragic figure.
The first trailer for Amy landed today, and it takes a more emotional, less scandalous route, touching on Winehouse’s rise to fame, her own struggle with success, her drug and alcohol abuse, and her tumultuous marriage. Most of all, though, it reminds you how captivating she was.
Amy will be released in July.
