The trailer for Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry just dropped and it’s already one of our favorite coming-of-age movies.
Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry follows the global sensation’s journey from on-the-rise indie pop star to Grammy-winning singer-songwriter. All the while, Billie Eilish was navigating her own life as a teenager.
From dying her hair different colors to writing songs in her childhood bedroom, the “bad guy” singer was, and is, a normal teen girl. For her, those years just so happened to include breaking records and amassing millions of fans. Therefore, this documentary will cover that growth, that excitement, and that shift in lifestyle. The newly-released trailer starts to tell those stories.
The two-minute teaser of the film opens up with Eilish and her brother, producer Finneas, doing their secret handshake. The next clip is one of the star passing her driver’s test. Later on, she’s washing her own car and spraying her mom with a hose.
There’s a balance of home movies and family moments with sold-out concert footage and backstage shenanigans. The trailer itself already showcases the paths this documentary took to paint a vivid, complete picture of Billie’s journey.
Billie Eilish’s Take On Success
In between these scenes in the trailer are bold phrases that juxtapose the low key life the teenager was living. “141 nominations. 137 million followers. 55 billion streams. 19 Songs on the Billboard Hot 100. 17 years old. 5 Grammy Awards.” Her success is off the charts, let alone for a girl who chooses to sleep in her parents’ bedroom.
Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry was filmed alongside her brother and her parents. She will only be 19-years-old when the documentary comes out, proving that she has accomplished so much so young. The California-born singer is a Gen Z phenomenon and a powerhouse performer, but at what cost? The upcoming documentary will shine a light on that for fans and critics alike.
Nobody’s rise to stardom is easy, which is a concept many believe this documentary will take. Eilish has been vocal about the struggle she had in the past with management, tours, creativity, and mental health. From that, she has grown into a distinguishable performer. Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry will, accordingly, tackle the ins-and-outs of a young girl’s success in a demanding industry.
The film is just a glimpse into the whirlwind life that the young superstar lives. The trailer sets it up to be raw and inspiring tale from the star herself. Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry will be released in select theaters and on Apple TV+ on February 26, 2021.
