Amy Winehouse s fam-
ily has criticised a film
about her life, saying it s
Speaking to Newsbeat,
Amy s dad Mitch says the
producers left out key
He says the film is
unbalanced, and isn t
happy with the way he s
The documentary, Amy,
is due to be shown at this
year s Cannes Film Festi-
val.It was made by the same team
behind the Bafta-winning documentary
Senna, about the Formula 1 racing driver
Mitch, who now fronts the Amy
Winehouse Foundation, says the film
presents him as not being there to help
Amy, something he denies.
"I was there every day.
"And if I wasn t there---because I
was working or I was away somewhere
or she was away somewhere---she d
phone seven times a day.
"And there s no sense of that in the
film and that s what s disappointing."
He thinks the film should have been
a bit more balanced: "A
biographer puts everything
down there and lets people
decide for themselves.
"These guys have decid-
ed what to put in and what
not to put in. It s a two-
hour film and you can t
put everything, but there s
got to be an element of
balance and there isn t
"My disappointment is
that the film could have
been terrific. They re going
to look at this film and know the film s
been tainted. And there s absolutely no
reason for it to have been that way."
Mitch s interview comes as a
spokesman for the family said they
"would like to disassociate themselves
from the forthcoming film about their
much missed and beloved Amy."
The filmmakers have defended the
documentary, saying: "When we were
approached to make the film, we came
on board with the full backing of the
Winehouse family and we approached
the project with total objectivity, as
Amy died aged 27 from alcohol poi-
soning in July 2011.
Hollywood first festival of Ukrain-
ian film is set to open next week at
the Laemmle Music Hall in Beverly
The brainchild of Los Angeles-based
Ukrainian-born producer Anatoly
Fradis---First Hollywood Festival of the
Best Ukrainian Films---will showcase
20 movies, including classics shot dur-
ing Soviet times and more recent
The festival is designed to highlight
the movie heritage of a country cur-
rently torn by conflict, where Russ-
ian-backed rebels have declared two
internationally unrecognised "peoples
republics" in Eastern Ukraine and the
Crimea peninsula seized by Moscow.
The event opens May 8 with a red-
carpet screening of Roman Balayan s
1983 film Flights in Dreams and in
Reality, a film about a 40-year-old
man who wakes up one day to realise
he has achieved nothing in his life.

Pitt explains story
behind his bruised face
Rest easy, ladies. Brad Pitt s bruised face isn t serious at all.
The Oscar-winning actor stepped out Saturday night at the Pantages
Theatre in Hollywood to support the third annual Light Up the Blues
But while speaking onstage in support of Autism Speaks, Pitt got
fans buzzing for his visible boo-boo. Never fear, folks! It was simply
caused by a little trip.
"This is what happens when you try to run up steps in the dark,
with your arms full, wearing flip flops," Pitt said in a statement to
E! News. "Turns out, if you then try to stop your forward momentum
with your face, the result is road rash."
Being the humanitarian and philanthropist that he is, Pitt
wasn t going to let a little accident stop him from attending
such a special event.
"Regardless, I wasn t going to miss the Autism
Speaks benefit the night after," he shared.
