One of the most awarded and best-selling performers of all time, Whitney Houston was a beloved recording artist with an unforgettable voice. A normal girl who grew up in a tough neighbourhood in Newark, New Jersey, Houston struggled to carve out her identity once she entered the spotlight. Her image was crafted to appeal to white America, and her own community saw her as not «black enough». Whitney: Can I Be Me delves into her troubled relationship with fame, her insecurities, her addiction and her notorious marriage with Bobby Brown. With unprecedented access to archival footage, home movies and concert performances, this is a revealing and intimate portrait of a tortured soul and an incisive view into the toll of fame and fortune. — Adam Cook
