Back to Black

The extraordinary story of Amy Winehouse’s early rise to fame from her early days in Camden through the making of her groundbreaking album, Back to Black that catapulted Winehouse to global fame. Told through Amy’s eyes and inspired by her deeply personal lyrics, the film explores and embraces the many layers of the iconic artist and the tumultuous love story at the center of one of the most legendary albums of all time.

2024, 122 Minutes, USA, Directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, Rated R

  • "The film is detailed, vivid, enthralling—and necessarily full of pain. The performances are top-notch, led by Ms. Abela, who does her own singing in an amazing re-creation of Winehouse’s muscular soul vocals."

  • "Back to Black is a soulful and sensitive portrait of a true artist bristling with energy and imbued with real affection for its subject."

  • "Back to Black takes that light/dark balance and digs into the drama of it, making it sing."

    - Owen Gleiberman, VARIETY
  • "Back to Black is essentially a gentle, forgiving film and 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."
