HBO has an incredible documentary on their hands about a legendary singer who has lived a very painful life. But also a life that’s been rewarding, probably beyond her wildest dreams. The film, ‘Tina’ will take fans inside the life of Tina Turner, sharing the good and the bad. Tina opens up and is very candid in the interviews, talking about her family and fame. Angela Bassett, who played Tina in the biopic, ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ also appears in the documentary. It will be really interesting to hear Bassett’s take on playing the challenging role that was really hard to watch at times. Samuel Jackson played Ike Turner, and even appeared to play it a little too well at times. I remember reading that after some of the very physical and violent moments of the film, when they were done shooting the scene, he would hold Bassett to comfort her. Tina’s husband Erwin and former MTV host Kurt Loder will also appear in this new film which premieres on HBO on March 27th at 8:00 p.m. ET.
