Actress, singer and a global star, Jennifer Lopez is the center of the Netflix documentary, “Halftime,” which debuts Opening Night at the Tribeca Film Festival on June 8. The film, directed by Oscar-nominated Tribeca alum Amanda Micheli (“Vegas Baby”), it will premiere on June 14. And now the streamer has announced a new trailer.
The trailer captures her determination to be “taken seriously” by her colleagues and the media, also a certain respect from music and film industries, while it’s showcasing her many hardships from a tearful Lopez’s reaction to her “Hustlers” Oscars snub, to maintain a high quality performance on the stage, to be considered as a “Diva” and put up with the question about her rear end and so on.
“HALFTIME” offers an intimate peek behind the curtain revealing the grit and determination that makes Jennifer Lopez the icon she is, from her performances onscreen and on stages around the world, to her Super Bowl Halftime show, to the recent Presidential inauguration. The documentary focuses on an international superstar who has inspired people for decades with her perseverance, creative brilliance and cultural contributions. And it’s only the beginning. “HALFTIME” serves as the kickoff to the second half of Lopez’s life, as she lays bare her evolution as a Latina, a mother, and an artist, taking agency in her career and using her voice for a greater purpose.
