The film examines Amy Winehouse's phenomenal musical career, her complex relationships with her loved ones, her addiction to alcohol and drugs and, of course – her reaction to her exceptional fame. This is a story of a rare talent that managed to break through and capture everyone's attention; of a well-loved and desired musician who collapsed under the gaze of millions of fans. The film not only portrays Winehouse's life story, but also succeeds in capturing her singular character as well as the zeitgeist of the first decade of the third millennium. It is a fascinating feature about a mesmerizing protagonist, one you just can't take your eyes off of.
