Brutally honest story, about the daughter of Nat "King" Cole
10 December 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A refreshingly honest look at the life and times of Natalie Cole, daughter of famed singer, Nat "King" Cole. The show is intercut with Natalie telling her own story of her struggles with heroin addiction, the long painful road to recovery, and her ultimate triumph as she makes a tribute album to her dad, one of America's best loved singers. She has become an extra-ordinary singer in her own right.
