Winehouse family criticizes 'misleading' movie about singer

The family of Amy Winehouse has criticized a documentary about the late singer that is due to have its premiere at next month's Cannes Film Festival.


A statement issued Sunday by family spokesman Chris Goodman said director Asif Kapadia's "Amy" is "misleading and contains some basic untruths." The statement said the film suggested family members did too little to help the singer, who died in July 2011, aged 27, after battling drug and alcohol abuse. It said the movie did not reflect the "huge effort from all concerned to help Amy at all stages." In a statement, the filmmakers said they began work with "total objectivity" and the support of the Winehouse family. They said the documentary was the result of interviews with about 100 people who knew the singer.
