In sensitive and unshrinking style, Academy Award-winning director Kevin Macdonald shines new and piercing light on the rise and fall of one of the music industries’ most iconic superstars, Whitney Houston. His documentary deftly chronicles Whitney Houston’s stratospheric rise to stardom on the world stage, and pieces together previously unseen home video, exclusive demo recordings, rare performance footage and interviews with those closest to the ballad-belting diva. Underlying the starry story is the darker side of Whitney Houston's life: a turbulent marriage to American rapper Bobby Brown - a possible catalyst to the singer’s self-destructive battle with drug addiction - and some oppressive family secrets. We witness a brilliant career turn to chaos, scandal and the death of woman that moved millions. Revisiting one of the most tragic stories in pop-music history, Whitney is a salient testament to incandescent talent and tragic finales.
Everyone’s favourite brood of everyday superheroes is back, fourteen years after The Incredibles first booked a special place in our hearts with a delightful mix of all-action adventure and relatable family dynamics. This time the star of the show is ‘Elastigirl’ Helen (Hunter), who leaves invincible strongman Bob (Nelson) at home with Violet (Sarah Vowell) and Dash (Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of ‘normal’ life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that no one’s quite cottoned on to baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (Jackson) must find a way to work together again – which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.
