About this Film


ODEON says...
Guest note: The preview screenings of 'Whitney' on 5th July will contain exclusive footage from the gala presentation including a performance from a renowned Gospel Choir.

Chronicling the story of the life and career of ‘Whitney’ Houston, this gripping documentary, officially supported by her estate, includes live recordings of performances and never-before-seen footage.

With access to the Houston estate’s archives, it also contains footage from personal home movies that offers a rare glimpse at her life behind the scenes, while trying to answer the question of why she self-destructed so painfully. 

An intimate yet comprehensive account of her life, ‘Whitney’ reveals a new side to a woman that even her die-hard fans never knew.

Kevin Macdonald’s in-depth film Whitney is an extremely powerful and disturbing documentary telling the ultimately tragic story of chart-topping singer Whitney Houston, with marvellous archive footage and intimately revealing interviews. http://www.derekwinnert.com/whitney-2018-whitney-houston-bobbi-kristina-brown-bobby-brown-cissy-houston-movie-review/
