D: Alexis Bloom and Fisher Stevens | USA | 95 min | SOUTHEAST REGION PREMIERE

An intimate portrait of Hollywood royalty in all its eccentricities, featuring Debbie Reynolds and her offspring Carrie Fisher and Todd Fisher.  Frank, funny and revealing, the project began when Carrie Fisher enlisted her friend, actor and documentarian Fisher Stevens and Stevens’s wife Alexis Bloom, to chronicle the final performances of her mother’s nightclub act. What emerged was an intimate look inside a Hollywood family, enlivened by Carrie Fisher’s sharp wit and brutal honesty, and by Debbie Reynolds’s determination to fly in the face of her own mortality. Bright Lights is an unfailing look at a mother and daughter who are polar opposites but for whom love is clearly a bond, a warm salute to a remarkable pair of women and the people around them.
