Back to Black

The extraordinary story of Amy Winehouse‘s early rise to fame and the making of her groundbreaking album, Back to Black. Told from Amy’s perspective and inspired by her deeply personal lyrics, the film follows the remarkable woman behind the phenomenon and the tumultuous relationship at the center of one of the most legendary albums of all time. Starring Marisa Abela as Amy Winehouse.

At its best, Back to Black, the forthright and compelling movie that’s been made of Winehouse’s life, takes that light/dark balance and digs into the drama of it, making it sing. Abela’s Amy is an authentic force of nature, and every inch the Winehouse we know…” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety

“… a satisfying biopic. It’s lifted by Winehouse’s music and by the staggering performance of Marisa Abela, who plays Winehouse and does all her own singing in this movie.” – Mike LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

“There are other, tougher, bleaker ways to put Winehouse’s life on screen – but Abela conveys her tenderness, and perhaps most poignantly of all her youth, so tellingly at odds with that tough image and eerily mature voice.” – Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
