About the Movie

In light of the recent and unexpected deaths of both Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, HBO Documentary Films presents this intimate portrait of Hollywood royalty in all its eccentricity. Carrie Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds, live in the same Beverly Hills compound. The 83-year-old grand dame still has a Las Vegas act, but performing is taking its toll. Carrie's response is both hilarious and heart-rending. Featuring vintage family films that bring iconic old-world Hollywood to life, as well as extensive verite footage, the film is directed by Alexis Bloom and Fisher Stevens.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Ms. Fisher is brainy and salty and hilarious, and she's frank and eloquent in describing being bipolar. – Margaret Lyons, New York Times, Dec 27, 2017

Fresh: The film transcends utility. It's a sober yet gracious cautionary tale about fame and fandom and a powerful portrait of love in action. – Jeff Jensen, Entertainment Weekly, Jan 10, 2017

Fresh: This is the film we have - one that is likely to leave those who loved Reynolds or Fisher loving them even more. – Robert Bianco, USA Today, Dec 27, 2017

Fresh: Even if [both subjects] hadn't died within a day of each other last week, Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds would have been a lovely, bittersweet portrait of a complicated yet unusually devoted mother-daughter relationship. – Meredith Blake, Los Angeles Times, Jan 5, 2017
