She also starred in sev­eral block­buster movies be­fore her bril­liant ca­reer gave way to er­ratic be­hav­ior, scan­dals and death at the age of 48. The doc­u­men­tary fea­ture Whit­ney is an in­ti­mate, un­flinch­ing por­trait of Hous­ton and her fam­ily that probes be­yond fa­mil­iar tabloid head­lines and sheds new light on the spell­bind­ing tra­jec­tory of Hous­ton's life. Us­ing never-be­fore-seen archival footage, ex­clu­sive demo record­ings, rare per­for­mances, au­dio ar­chives and orig­i­nal in­ter­views with the peo­ple who knew her best, Os­car-win­ning film­maker Kevin Mac­don­ald un­rav­els the mys­tery be­hind the voice who thrilled mil­lions even as she strug­gled to make peace with her own trou­bled past.
