Movie Info

WISHFUL DRINKING, Fisher details her complicated yet eclectic extended family tree in Hollywood Inbreeding 101, employing a blackboard and wooden pointer. Her father Eddie Fisher's very public affair with Elizabeth Taylor ended what had been perceived and celebrated as a "storybook marriage," and she and her brother Todd later watched both her mother's and father's "once white-hot bright star of celebrity slowly dim, cool and fade." In 1973, at her mother's urging, the 17-year-old Fisher enrolled at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London two years later, her life changed forever when she donned a white dress as Princess Leia in George Lucas' "Star Wars."more

Carrie runs you through the mill of her complex life, fascinating in parts a little too revealing in others. Be sure to watch the extra interview wiith Debbie Reynolds that is gold.

Wishful Drinking, the telecast, is way, way better than the book. Carrie Fisher's words come alive when she's saying them.

Really liked the book and expected this to be the same but was really surprised at how fresh it was. Carrie Fisher is captivating and brutally honesty in this sweet one-woman show put on by HBO. Laughed hysterically throughout and visuals and audience participation really contributed well.
