Why does no one mention this fine documentary of both Carrie Fisher andher mother, Debbie Reynolds, that played on HBO and AFI 2016. I foundit so moving and informative about their very close relationship. I'mhoping the film will be distributed widely following Carrie's prematuredeath. What's wrong with those obit writers who don't seem to be awareof this film? An important revelation to this viewer was the musicaltalent Carrie exhibited. Her singing voice reflected the gifts sheinherited from both Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. There may havebeen downsides to being the child of such celebrated parents, but shewas certainly up to the task. In addition, her wry observations ofherself and others was right on. Kitty A postscript following the deathof Debbie Reynolds. Bright Lights gives an answer to why the symbiosisof this relationship could lead to the second death.

When Carrie Fisher passed away unexpectedly late last year, at thattime knowing nothing about the health of her mother, Debbie Reynolds,only her age - 84 - I thought to myself, this kind of a shock could doa person in at that age. And the next day it did.
This documentary shows these two as much more than just mother anddaughter, but fast friends. It is a great tribute to both ladies. Ittalks a little bit about Debbie's past problems - being abandoned byher husband with two small children, then marrying a guy she thoughtwould bring her family some stability and security, but it didn't - hein fact bankrupted them with his compulsive gambling. And she faced allof this with dignity and was a fighter.
Debbie doesn't do that much talking for or about herself. In factthrough most of the documentary it is mentioned how she is feeling justawful, but you'd never guess it. She is always dressed to the nines andsmiling - something Carrie said she learned as a recruit in the oldstudio system at MGM. And then, feeling awful, Debbie books a Las Vegasshow and brings her children into the act because she simply can't dothe whole show. She just couldn't retire outright because she lovedentertaining and loved the audiences.
Carrie does most of the talking. Like mom, she is a fighter, and alsohas quite a sense of humor. She fought her way back from a childhood inwhich she was abandoned by her dad, Eddie Fisher, in every waypossible. It's like he just left them behind like they were part of apast life - until Carrie had some success and he came back asking formoney. She fought her way back from drug addiction and her failedmarriage to Paul Simon, who was much older than she, and during thedocumentary she is quite open about her battle with her weight as shetries to get the pounds off with the help of a trainer in preparationfor the Star Wars film, "Episode 7". The trainer keeps trying to takeher sodas away from her - which she keeps replenishing.
Carrie has a visit from old childhood chum Griffin Dunne, and theyeasily talk about their youth. After all of the awful stuff you havejust learned about her dad, Eddie Fisher, and his parental negligence,Carrie goes to visit him, and he does look like death warmed over atthis point, and Carrie tells him that she loves him and she seems toreally mean it. It is revealed during the documentary that Eddie Fisherwas a drug addict too, and I think having that common experience withher dad has made it easier for her to forgive him. What a classy lady.Eddie Fisher passed away in 2010, so obviously this part of thedocumentary was shot much earlier.
Todd, Carrie's younger brother, is in the documentary too, but hedoesn't have much to say.
The documentary is not in "this is your life" style. It is more justfollowing Debbie and Carrie around and showing the deep relationshipand love they had for one another. Dance on in the afterlife classyladies, you'll both be terribly missed. I miss you already.
Obviously, highly recommended.
Watching this and seeing the true Love between Debbie & her children isheartwarming. It also gives you a slight insight into the old and newHollywood lifestyle. Not such an easy life.
After seeing how much Carrie cared for her Mom, and worried about herdeclining health, I wonder if Carrie is actually the one who died of abroken heart. Those 2 were soul mates, and they left the word at almostthe same time.
I thought it was so well done, and such a tribute to 2 lovely lades.
My heart goes out to Billie Lourd, who at age 24,lost her Mom &Grandmom, and Todd Fisher, who lost his Mom & his sister.
Nothing will bring them back, but this film will be such a great memoryfor their family now, and for generations to come.
