With over 200 million album sales worldwide, she was the only artist to chart seven consecutive U.S. No. 1 singles. She also starred in several blockbuster movies before her brilliant career gave way to erratic behavior, scandals and death at age 48.

Roger EbertFull Review Good Houston's music takes a back seat to digging for the reason why she never really felt comfortable in her own skin. The dirt is definitely covered in Macdonald's film. There are villains in every corner. And Houston spent most of her final years looking and acting like one of the walking dead...
NewsdayFull Review Very Good "Whitney" is daring both emotionally and aesthetically, and although it is his interpretation, it gets to a kind of truth about Houston the public has never known. "Whitney" depicts all the highs and lows of her life with a searing honesty, so much of what we take away is just how special she was.
