BRIGHT LIGHTS: STARRING CARRIE FISHER AND DEBBIE REYNOLDS

Directed by : Alexis BLOOM , Fisher STEVENS

Year of production : 2016 Length : 95 minutes

Synopsis

This is an intimate portrait of Hollywood royalty, in all its eccentricity. At 83 years old, grand dame Debbie Reynolds (star of Singing in the Rain) still performs a Las Vegas act, dressed in gold lamé. But performing takes its toll, and Debbie’s health suffers. This devastates her daughter, “Star Wars” actress Carrie Fisher, whose response is both hilarious, and heartbreaking. It is clear the umbilical cord has never been cut. With vintage family films, iconic old-world Hollywood history comes to life. And rich cinema verité takes us to into the heart of Beverly Hills today, where Carrie and Debbie live together. This is a film about show business, and bittersweet family love.
