Amy Winehouse: One Shining Night

“It’s fitting that this gem of a film on the late Amy Winehouse feels short, because so did her life…Five years later, she left all of us. Anyone who wants to remember what she left behind needs to see One Shining Night.” (David Hinckley, New York Daily News)

Before she became “the pre-eminent vocal talent of her generation” (BBC)—and well before her 2011 death—she was simply Amy Winehouse, playing an acoustic set in a tiny church for an Irish TV music series in 2006. This intimate film features moving performances of songs from Back to Black (“Rehab,” “You Know I’m No Good”), and her candid conversation about how Mahalia Jackson, Thelonious Monk, and Salt-N-Pepa helped her forge her own style.
