United States | 2016 | 94 min | English | Fisher Stevens, Alexis Bloom

On December 27, 2016 Hollywood starlet Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia in Star Wars) died. In a strange twist of fate, her famous actress mother Debbie Reynolds also passed away just two days later.

Here is the story of a Hollywood mother and daughter which reveals an eccentric, complicated love. Also hilarious and heart-wrenching, this film is an intimate portrait of a unique mother/daughter bond as well as the often seething Hollywood royalty scene. Featuring vintage family films that bring iconic old-world Hollywood to life, as well as extensive vérité footage, Bright Lights captures their unique chemistry, quicksilver wit and intelligence.
