“Always a bit upsetting in the end, isn’t it?” Amy Winehouse said at one point during a recording session, in a bit of unintentional foreshadowing.
The Amy Winehouse documentary got rave reviews at Cannes, and from the looks of the first official trailer, it’s easy to see why. With archival footage of Winehouse, interviews with family and friends, and film shot by her and her friends, it manages to give us a look into her life we never would’ve had otherwise. She was a sensational performer with an incredible voice and a troubled personal life, but she was also more than that.
And what we get here is only the beginning.
Amy hits theaters July 10.
