In light of the recent tragic passing of Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher, the last few of the few remaining Hollywood royalty, HBO has decided to early release of its documentary Bright Lights : Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. The documentary will debut this Saturday January 7th at 8 pm EST exclusively on HBO. Bright Lights : Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds received critical acclaim from both the audience and critics in many prestigious film festival across the globe including Cannes Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival and New York Film Festival.
The official synopsis of the documentary before the passing of Fisher and Reynolds is as follows :
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 vérité footage, the film is directed by Alexis Bloom and Fisher Stevens.
The tragic death of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds last month will certainly have a somber impact and make the audience feel rob off many more years of the funny, talented and very dedicated mother and daughter dynamic duos have to offer the world.
