You have no need to know who was Whitney before watching

The whole movie is a huge journey to the life of the world famous “femme fatale”. Through the memoirs of Houston’s relatives, her hairdressers, agents and bodyguards, ex-lovers and closest friends (with the notable exception of Robyn Crawford, who is considered to be her true life partner), you’ll become a witness of the life story belonging to a curly girl called Nippy, who destined to become a legend.

There is something that’s never been spoken about

MacDonald pretended to describe not only bright sides of Whitney’s life, but also the darkest shades of it. okey, it happened when Whitney was a kid and her mom Cissy was on tour. Houston was molested by her aunt, Dee-Dee Warwick, sister of soul legend Dionne. This shocking revelation is shown to be the reason for the struggles the singer faced throughout her life (drug-addiction and Houston’s status of a gay woman). But, most exciting is that both Gary and her aunt Mary actually reveal who it was: Dee Dee Warwick, Whitney’s own cousin and sister to Dionne Warwick.

What’s about Robyn Crawford?

Whitney was often asked about her close friendship with her beautiful childhood friend Robyn Crawford. The answer was suggested in Broomfield’s film that she was the real love of Whitney’s life. However, this film just skates over the whole issue of Robyn’s existence. Crawford declined to be interviewed and she is absent in the film. But there can be no doubt that she was one of the most important people in Houston’s life.

The open theme of the film is an audio“I Wanna Dance with Somebody”. The whole movie is briefly connected with music. Even if the very mention of ‘I Will Always Love You’ brings you out in hives, you’ll find yourself re-evaluating your feelings for this still oddly underappreciated talent. The power of Houston’s music is only amplified on the big screen.
