The Amy Winehouse biopic Back to Black is finally out in theaters in the U.S. It’s been out for the last month in the UK, and it was originally set for a May 10 release in North America before being pushed back a week.

Marisa Abela takes on the role of the late British singer, telling us the story of her upbringing and rise to fame. Jack O’Connell plays Blake Fielder-Civil, who was routinely connected to Amy as her fame grew. The two had a troublesome relationship due to his cocaine addiction and Amy’s alcoholism and bulimia. We see all of that play out in the movie. However, it’s worth noting that close friends of Winehouse say that the paparazzi are the ones to blame for Amy’s troubles and not Blake.

This is a movie that doesn’t shy away from the heartbreak and suffering Amy went through. We also see her get help for her drug abuse and focus on turning her life around. Sadly, it was too late to save her life.

Back to Black likely won’t go to Prime Video at first

This is a Focus Features movie, and we have seen movies from this studio head to Prime Video at first. However, Universal has the licensing rights for the movie, and that usually means that Peacock is the first streaming home. However, Universal Pictures movies tend to head to Prime Video shortly after that.

It’s not clear what direction Back to Black will go in right now. We’ll be sure to keep an eye on the plans.

Back to Black will be available via Amazon Video

There is some good news, though. You won’t need to wait for a streaming home to watch it. Like other theatrical release, Back to Black will head to Digital. That means you’ll be able to buy or rent it via Amazon Instant Video. When you buy the movie, it’s added to your Amazon Library for as long as you have your Amazon account.

There is no need to buy a Prime Video subscription to watch movies on Digital. Your Amazon account is free, and you just buy the individual movies that you’re interested in watching. It’s possible to watch as much as you want, and you don’t need to keep track of the streaming home.
