Documentary “Britney vs. Spears ”produced by the Netflix platform is the story of the singer’s conflict with her father Jamie. On September 21, Netflix showed the first trailer of the movie, and two days later – the official one, lasting over a minute.
The first trailer was short, just 18 seconds long. That was the duration of the voicemail left by Britney in 2009 on her lawyer’s answering machine. It was a year after she was taken into her guardianship. It was this news that was used by the film’s producers as its first teaser. The documentary will be released on September 28, the day before the next Britney Spears incapacitation trial. On the Netflix website, you can now watch the official trailer of the film, much longer than the first.
Britney Spears: “I want my life back”
The details of the film have not yet been released, and the production has long been shrouded in secrecy, although the media predicted that the document would primarily address the issue of her father’s tutelage over Britney. This is also the official teaser. “I want my life back,” says Spears in the trailer. The film was directed by Erin Lee Carr, who previously produced “How to Fix a Drug Scandal” for Netflix and “I Love You, Now Die: The Commonwealth vs. Michelle Carter ”for HBO. The Netflix platform is responsible for the production. Work on the document has been going on for over a year.
It will not be the first film about the life of Britney Spears – a star who, despite her mature age, several marriages and two sons on her account, cannot decide about her own life. The production of “Who framed Britney Spears”, available in Poland for several months, met with a great response from the singer’s fans and a stormy discussion on social media under the slogan “free Britney”.
A controversial star
Britney Spears is an icon of pop culture at the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries. Controversial – on the one hand, she had crowds of fans of her music, and on the other – many opponents of these behaviors and the artist’s decisions, which had a negative impact on her image. In 2008, due to disorders and a nervous breakdown, the court decided to incapacitate the artist, and her custody was given to her father James Spears and lawyer Andrew Wallet. In 2019, the lawyer relinquished his guardianship, and her father took over the singer. This year, the singer again brought an application to the court to abolish her father’s continued care. The next hearing is scheduled for September 29.
