Directed by Fifty Shades of Grey’s Sam Taylor-Johnson, “Back to Black” delves into the singer’s intense rise to fame before her tragic death in July 2011.
English actress Marisa Abela transforms into the role of Amy, recreating her signature look with the iconic beehive, piercings and heavy winged eyeliner.
