This is acclaimed director Nick Broomfield's (Kurt & Courtney, Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer) new film about one of the greatest singers of all time. Whitney Houston was the epitome of superstar, an “American Princess,” the most award-winning female artist ever. Even though Houston had made millions of dollars, had more consecutive number ones than the Beatles, and became recognised as having one of the greatest voices of all time, she still wasn’t free to be herself and died tragically at the age of 48.
Made with largely never-seen before footage and exclusive live recordings, Whitney, Can I Be Me tells Whitney Houston’s incredible and poignant life story with insights from those closest to her.
