Whitney - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Whitney Houston broke more music industry records than any other female singer in history. With over 200 million album sales worldwide, she was the only artist to chart seven consecutive U.S. No. 1 singles. She also starred in several blockbuster movies before her brilliant career gave way to erratic behavior, scandals and death at age 48. The documentary feature Whitney is an intimate, unflinching portrait of Houston and her family that probes beyond familiar tabloid headlines and sheds new light on the spellbinding trajectory of Houston’s life. Using never-before-seen archival footage, exclusive demo recordings, rare performances, audio archives and original interviews with the people who knew her best, Oscar®-winning filmmaker Kevin Macdonald unravels the mystery behind “The Voice,” who thrilled millions even as she struggled to make peace with her own troubled past.

MOVIE REVIEW

I was supposed to review the documentary Whitney a week ago, but a little thing called The Haunting of Hill House debuted on Netflix, and, well, Whitney Houston didn’t win. The postponement didn’t really pay off, as the documentary is a well made but somewhat forgettable reporting of the troubled singer’s life.
