A beloved Hollywood starlet known for a number of iconic roles – gone at 32 years old. Unanswered questions, controversial figures, and surrounded by speculation: what really happened to Brittany Murphy?
The two part doc will arrive on October 14th and will provide an “in-depth and intimate” look at the late actress’s life by featuring new interviews with her loved ones and never-before-seen archival footage. It also promises to dive deeply into the mysterious circumstances surrounding Murphy’s tragic death at her Los Angeles home in 2009, which was determined at the time as being caused by pneumonia, iron-deficiency anemia, and “multiple drug intoxication”. Murphy’s widower, Simon Monjack, died in 2010 at the same location under similar conditions.
Director Cynthia Hill said the purpose of her film is to put the spotlight back on Murphy’s talents.
“I agreed to do this film because I think it’s a shame that Brittany’s promising life and career has been eclipsed by the circumstances of her death. I think it’s important to celebrate Brittany’s talent as we struggle to explain the tragic circumstances of her and Simon’s deaths”.
