Former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto’s remarkable life and last days are exquisitely unraveled in this epic biographic documentary. Bhutto carved out a complex path, from her early days studying at Berkeley in the late ’60s, where she honed her social activism, to witnessing the controversial downfall and assassination of her father, former Prime Minister Zulfikar Bhutto, to her house arrest and political imprisonment. Elected as the first female leader of an Islamic nation, she championed a democratic and educated Pakistan through key moments in the country’s turbulent history, all while carrying the weight of allegations against her, her husband, and her father’s political legacy. Bhutto’s successes and failures were scrutinized by the public, the Islamic world, and within her family, and her story unfolds in truly Shakespearean proportions. Featuring exclusive interviews with the Bhutto family, this riveting portrait is as bold as the controversial figure herself. — Karina Rotenstein
