Whitney: Can I Be Me
“Can I be me?” was Houston’s favourite expression, according to her band members, so much so that they sampled it to play at the start of rehearsals. WHITNEY: CAN I BE ME explores, via candid interviews and performance footage, the central dilemma that Houston faced: even though she had made millions of dollars, had more consecutive number one hits than The Beatles, and was recognised as having one of the greatest voices of all time, she still couldn’t do what she wanted to do, either professionally or in her personal life. What’s created is a portrait of a remarkable woman who needed more help than she received, and an unflinching, gripping and wholly committed exploration of talent given and taken away.
