The new Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds documentary will gut you

“It’s a love story. Carrie wanted to make ‘Bright Lights’ for Debbie and Debbie wanted to make it for Carrie.”

That’s HBO Documentary Films president Sheila Nevins, talking to Variety about the upcoming Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, who died last month only a day apart from each other.

The trailer features Fisher and Reynolds riffing on cell phones and memory loss while pawing through old photos and touches upon Fisher’s well-documented bouts of mental illness, chronicled in her books Shock-a-holic and Wishful Drinking. 

Fisher died at the age of 60 following a heart attack on a flight from London to LA, and 84-year-old Reynolds was hospitalized and died the next day.

The documentary’s premiere date has been moved up to January 7 following the loss. And as you’ll see below, the footage is quite gutting, even for the callow.
