What Happened, Brittany Murphy? on HBO Max
Genre: True Crime
HBO Max Summary:
What Happened, Brittany Murphy? is an intimate, in-depth character portrait of actor Brittany Murphy, going beyond the headlines to explore the mysterious circumstances surrounding her tragic death at 32 years old.
A captivating actor as effervescent on-screen as she was off, Murphy was a rising star whose movies helped define a generation. But in 2009, Murphy’s untimely passing ended her promising career, while the mysterious circumstances surrounding her death quickly became fodder for speculation and conspiracy theories. Featuring new archival footage and interviews with those closest to her, What Happened, Brittany Murphy? goes beyond the tabloid rumors to examine the impact of Hollywood’s sexism on her struggles and lingering concerns about her relationship with her husband, Simon Monjack. Sensitive and nuanced, the docuseries explores the legacy of a unique talent.
Although I learned a lot that I didn’t know about Brittany Murphy before her passing, I had recently heard many stories about the theories behind her death. I don’t think this particular docuseries covered it all, although they alluded to it early on in the show. There are only two episodes, so it’s a quick watch. Both of them kept me entertained and had me hoping for more.
I give What Happened, Brittany Murphy? on HBO Max 4 out of 5 stars.
