Watch the Official Trailer for the Upcoming Amy Winehouse Doc
Before Back to Black, beehives and endless awards, Amy Winehouse was just a young girl trying to make it in the music industry. Similar to the teaser clip we shared last month, the new trailer for the upcoming Winehouse documentary, Amy, shows clips of what she looked like before all the fame -- and more of the natural Amy that many of us didn't get see once she embodied her vintage persona.
"She was highly intelligent, the most intelligent person I knew," a voice says in the trailer.
The doc also looks at her rise to being an award-winning, chart-topping star as well as her tumultuous relationship with Blake Fielder-Civil, the man she says is someone she "would have died for." And of course, it also looks into her demise -- from the pressures she felt and the constant media attention to her struggles with drug and alcohol addiction that led to her death in 2011, it all seems to be captured in this film.
"I'm not a girl trying to be a star," she says at the end of the trailer. "I'm just a girl that sings."
Despite the buzz surrounding it, Winehouse's family has denounced the film and feels that it is "misleading" and doesn't show her whole story.
“The narrative is formed by the testimony of a narrow sample of Amy’s associates, many of whom had nothing to do with her in the last years of her life,” a spokesperson for Winehouse’s family said (via People). “Counter views expressed to the filmmakers did not make the final cut."
Amy hits theaters in New York and Los Angeles on July 3 and all across the U.S. on July 10.
