Brace yourself for goosebumps with this stunning portrayal of a beloved international star, her talent and her tragedy from Academy Award-winning director Kevin Macdonald (One Day In September, The Last King of Scotland).

Whitney Houston broke more music industry records than any other female singer in history. With over 200 million album sales worldwide, she was the only artist to chart seven consecutive U.S. No. 1 singles. She also starred in several blockbuster movies before her brilliant career gave way to erratic behavior, scandals and death at age 48. Whitney is an intimate, unflinching portrait of Houston and her family that probes beyond familiar tabloid headlines and sheds new light on the spellbinding trajectory of Houston’s life.
