From BAFTA award-winning director Asif Kapadia, Amy tells the incredible story of six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse. In her own words. Featuring extensive unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks, this strikingly modern, moving and vital film shines a light on the world we live in, in a way that very few can.
A once-in-a-generation talent, Amy Winehouse was a musician that captured the world's attention. A pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense, she wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gifts to analyze her own problems. The combination of her raw honesty and supreme talent resulted in some of the most unique and adored songs of the modern era.
Her huge success, however, resulted in relentless and invasive media attention which coupled with Amy Winehouse's troubled relationships and precarious lifestyle saw her life tragically begin to unravel. Amy Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011 at the age of 27. After an incredibly emotional world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival the final poster and trailer for Amy is here! Response in Cannes was rapturous with an extended standing ovation at the screening this past Saturday night. Check out this sneak peek, with A24 opening Amy in New York & Los Angeles on July 3, 2015. And Nationwide on July 10, 2015:
