Whitney: Can I Be Me

From acclaimed director Nick Broomfield (Kurt & Courtney, Biggie and Tupac) comes a new film about one of the greatest singers of all time.

Whitney Houston was the epitome of superstar, an “American Princess,” the most awarded female artist ever. Even though Whitney had made millions of dollars, had more consecutive number ones than The Beatles, and became recognised as having one of the greatest voice of all time, she still wasn’t free to be herself and died at just 48 years old.

Made with largely never-seen before footage and exclusive live recordings, Whitney: Can I Be Me tells Whitney Houston’s incredible and poignant life story with insights from those closest to her.
