The Brittany Murphy Story tells the story of the talented young actress who became a breakout star with the support and determination of her mother, Sharon, in the ’80s and ’90s. With high-profile roles in Clueless, 8 Mile and Girl, Interrupted, Brittany achieved her Hollywood dream, but her desperation for approval and insecurity about her looks made her personal life a disaster. Though the men in Brittany’s life would come and go, her mother remained her grounding force. But that enduring maternal love wasn’t enough to save Brittany from the dangers of Hollywood. Four years later, as news reports swirl around the mystery of Brittany’s untimely death amid her father’s claims that she was poisoned; Sharon and Brittany are thrust into the limelight once more.
