Back to Black

It’s the film everyone is talking about, so why not hear from those behind it – as HeyUGuys were fortunate participants at the press junket for the forthcoming Amy Winehouse biopic, Back to Black.

To mark the film’s cinematic release on April 12, we spoke to the leading lady herself, Marisa Abela, as she talks about embodying such an icon, and her process in undertaking all of the songs of the subject, which she herself sings in the movie. She was paired with director Sam Taylor-Johnson, who talks about the talents of the actress sat besides her. We also spoke to Eddie Marsan who plays Amy’s father Mitch, as he talks about addiction, and how he went about understanding and connecting to his character. Finally you can watch our interview with producer Alison Owen, alongside screenwriter Matt Greenhalgh.
