From acclaimed directors Nick Broomfield and Rudi Dolezal comes a new film about one of the greatest singers of all time. Whitney Houston was the epitome of a 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 recognized as having one of the greatest voices of all time, she still wasn't free to be herself and died from a drug overdose. She was only 48 years old. Made with largely never-seen before footage and exclusive recordings, Whitney 'Can I Be Me' tells Whitney Houston's incredible and poignant life story with insights from those closest to her.

    Nick Broomfield has created a brilliant and balanced documentary of Whitney's life which includes Rudi Dolezal's incredible unseen backstage footage. You think you know the story but this really puts you on the inside and is compelling from the first minute to the last and includes some great concert footage. Highly recommend!
