The story of a family's complicated love, this documentary is an intimate portrait of the American actress and writer Carrie Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds – Hollywood royalty in all its eccentricity.

Fisher and Reynolds lived in the same Beverly Hills compound, and while the 83-year-old grand dame still had a Las Vegas act, performing was taking its toll. Carrie's response was both hilarious and heart-rending. Directed by Alexis Bloom and Fisher Stevens, Bright Lights features vintage family films that bring iconic old-world Hollywood to life, as well as extensive vérité footage
