Amy Winehouse Documentary Sheds Light On Drug Addiction

In the Oscar-nominated documentary Amy, the life of singer Amy Winehouse is portrayed in an honest light, with a focus on her battle with heroin addiction. The film shows the effects of addiction on the brain and examines how Winehouse's celebrity status prevented her from taking the time necessary for treatment. While dealing with paparazzi and adoring fans, there is an impulse for celebrities suffering with addiction to keep working and pushing themselves beyond their limits, abandoning their mental health and succumbing to their vices even further. Dr. Drew Pinsky said, "Amy offers the clearest, most powerful portrait of the affects of addiction I’ve ever seen on film."
