“A touching, empathetic portrait of Houston as a daughter, mother, powerhouse performer and flawed human being.”~News.com.au
Aroview: Bearing less of his signature subjectivity, veteran documentarian Nick Broomfield explores Whitney Houston's meteoric rise to stardom, turbulent marriage to Bobby Brown, battle with drugs and tragic death. Though more sympathetic and straight-forward than his other exposes of (living) celebrities, the result is no less compelling.

4 stars (Very Good) Thoughtful, intelligent & balanced. Intimate portrait of a meteoric rise from poverty in NJ, driven by an ambitious mum. She used drugs from age 10. Her humility & frustations are clear. The real bodyguard explains how few black stars have happy lives.~Sandy
