Featuring exclusive audio and never-before-seen video archive from Whitney Houston’s time as a recording artist, this powerful new film by Kevin Macdonald (Touching the Void, The Last King of Scotland, Marley) is an honest portrait of rare talent, told by those closest to her.


Tracing the singer’s upbringing and phenomenal career through to her early death in 2012, Whitney remembers the talent and tragedy that surrounded Whitney Houston.


If Whitney bears many similarities to Asif Kapadia’s Amy (2015), it is because Houston and Winehouse shared a remarkably similar descent, a path paved with fraught relationships with their fathers and husbands, a dense social circle of enablers, and a crushing melancholy they sought to quell with drugs and alcohol.


The film dwells equally on her natural charisma, her exuberance and her talent. At one point, an audience is left to marvel at her acrobatic voice, nimbly crooning the opening lines of I Wanna Dance with Somebody free of music. Unseen footage and interviews with the singer showcase a woman who, though struggling, was charming and full of spirit, well suited to the spotlight.
