The trailer for the documentary about the late Heath Ledger was released yesterday on what would have been the actor’s 38th birthday. And it’s a heartbreaker.
The teaser for I Am Heath Ledger features super emotional behind-the-scenes footage and commentary from friends like director Ang Lee, who described the Australian powerhouse as such a strong force on screen that “even as a supporting actor, he will steal the whole show.”
Ledger passed away on Jan. 22, 2008. The documentary will debut at the Tribeca Film Festival this month before airing on Spike TV on May 17.
