The Kevin Macdonald film offers a closer look inside Houston's personal and public life. It contains several new glimpses into the late performer's past, including previously unreleased tracks and never-before-seen footage, as well as recorded live performances throughout her career.

"I approached Whitney's life like a mystery story; why did someone with so much raw talent and beauty self-destruct so publicly and painfully," Macdonald said.

"I was lucky enough to have the support of and the Houston estate in this quest. They entrusted me with the 'keys to the vault' while giving me complete freedom to follow the story wherever it went. At heart, 'Whitney' is an intimate family story that reveals a new side to a woman that even her most die-hard fans never knew," he added.

Houston, a icon, died in February 2012. She was found dead in a bathtub in a hotel room.
