Ms. Fisher is brainy and salty and hilarious, and she's frank and eloquent in describing being bipolar.

This is the film we have - one that is likely to leave those who loved Reynolds or Fisher loving them even more.

The film transcends utility. It's a sober yet gracious cautionary tale about fame and fandom and a powerful portrait of love in action.

Bright Lights plucks [Fisher's] star and that of her mother down from distant heights and lets us gently hold them for a time, reassuring us that their brilliance and humanity was real, their mutual endearment unbreakable.

Bright Lights is a much better way to remember them. It wasn't supposed to double as a requiem, but who knew at the time?

No matter how unsinkable you are, no matter how hard you try to use The Force, it's impossible to look at that image of mother and daughter, fiercely by each other's sides, and do anything other than cry.
