The highly anticipated Amy Winehouse documentaryAmy hits cinemas on July 3. A mixture of archive footage, home video and live recording, the film touches upon the pitfalls of fame that many speculate contributed to the singer’s death.
Early reviews at Cannes suggest that Amy is a wonderful watch, but Winehouse’s family spoke out against the film, saying that "they would like to disassociate themselves from the forthcoming film about their much missed and beloved Amy," and feel that the film is "a missed opportunity to celebrate her life and talent and that it is both misleading and contains some basic untruths."
Director Asif Kapadia rejected those accusations outright, asking "how could I have an agenda, if when I started, I didn’t know any of the story, or the people?"
This is an exclusive clip from the film showing Winehouse pre-success, unaware of the turbulent fame that awaits her. "I don’t think (I’ll be big) at all," she says. "My music is not on that scale. Sometimes I wish it was. I don't think I'm going to be at all famous. I don’t think I could handle it."
