In the documentary, the two actresses live in the same Beverly Hills compound. Reynolds, who starred in the 1952 classic Singin' in the Rain, is aged 83 in the documentary and still has a Las Vegas act but performing is taking its toll. Audiences can see Fisher's hilarious yet heart-rending reactions in the documentary.

Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds was screened at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, the Telluride Film Festival and New York Film Festival. The documentary reportedly received both audience and critical acclaim. (kes)
