Amy tells singer Amy Winehouse’s unique life story from her own perspective. Her phenomenal voice and musical talent made her one of the greatest musical icons of this century. An utterly authentic jazz artist, Amy’s lyrics and her singing came from the depths of her soul. Her mix of raw honesty and talent produced some of the most original and acclaimed numbers of the century, for which she received six Grammy Awards. But there was a shadow side to her worldwide success, in the form of an unrelenting and merciless media circus which, together with her turbulent love life and lifestyle, began to take its toll. On 23 July 2011 she died at the age of 27 of alcohol poisoning. In Amy director Asif Kapadia offers a modern, gripping must-see portrait, using previously unpublished archive material and unknown numbers. The film will be nominated for the 2016 Oscars.
