Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds' Bright Lights Doc Gets HBO Trailer

Anyone in need of a good cry? Well, step right up.

HBO has released the trailer for Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, its documentary about the complex relationship between the late, iconic mother-daughter duo.

The film, premiering Saturday, Jan. 7 at 8/7c, offers a candid look at “a family’s complicated love” that doubles as an “intimate portrait of Hollywood royalty in all its eccentricity.”

The 84-year-old Reynolds and the 60-year-old Fisher died last month just one day apart, with the former suffering a stroke and the latter felled by a heart attack.

Will you be tuning in this weekend?

    I honestly don’t know if I can. It’s still a little raw and unspeakable for me. I may need another week or so.

    “I’m my mom’s best friend”/”I share everything with my daughter” And bring on the tears.

    Given the circumstances of their deaths we are extremely fortunate to have this glimpse into their relationship, and in some ways it makes it so much more understandable that Debbie could not continue after Carrie’s death. In some ways Debbie, in failing health, was holding on because of her daughter.

    The feels. All the feels.
