Bright Lights Doc Goes Deep into Debbie and Carrie’s Relationship
HBO has released the first trailer for their upcoming documentary Bright Lights, which explores the mother-daughter dynamic between Hollywood icons Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher. The documentary goes into the ups and downs of their loving relationship.
Just weeks after the passing of Debbie and Carrie, HBO have decided to air the upcoming documentary Bright Lights: Starring Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher this week. The cable network unveiled a trailer from the documentary, which gives us the first look at their family’s complicated relationship. The film gives us an open window into Hollywood royalty in all its craziness. Before their deaths, the documentary was described like this:
Carrie Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds, live in the same Beverly Hills compound. The 83-year-old grand dame still has a Las Vegas act, but performing is taking its toll. Carrie’s response is both hilarious and heart-rending. Featuring vintage family films that bring iconic old-world Hollywood to life, as well as extensive vérité footage, the film is directed by Alexis Bloom and Fisher Stevens.
The film has already received a warm ovation from audiences and critics everywhere at many film festivals last year, including the Cannes Film Festival and the New York Film Festival. Fans will now be able to see these two during their final years before their sudden passing when HBO airs the documentary on Saturday, January 7 at 8PM.
