insightful, thoughtful, aspirational
mimiller from Ireland
23 August 2005
This was an amazing documentary, I think we are all familiar with
reality TV shows and behind the scenes with the celebs (u know, the
simple life, britneys chaotic etc) but this showed us the knock on
effect of the celebrity lifestyle.
Told from the perspective of the children we had an insight to the
good, the bad and damn near impossible relationships that celebrities
have with their children.
It was touching on many levels, we saw the way the children coped,
quite often by changing their names to try and make it on their own. We
saw the son of Ozzy Osbourne trying to make it without using his dads
name, not succeeding, going to LA, using his dads name, becoming
disenchanted and returning again to the UK.
For me though the highlight was Jason Everly, son of one of the Everly
brothers he came across as approachable, down to earth and not at all
caught up in the celeb lifestyle. He is an incredibly talented (and far
too modest) musician in his own right, I was so blown away that I
ordered his cd as soon as the programme finished.
All too often we focus on the celebs in the limelight, rightly so I
guess as that's where they are but we forget the people behind them,
the partners, the children and the friends. This wonderful documentary
gave us a tiny insight to what it is like for them as they struggle to
be recognised in their own right and not just seen in the shadow of
their famous parents....
Well worth watching... Off to eBay now to see if I can find a copy!
