“[It was] incredibly emotional,” she said. “I think I screamed and cried through the whole first viewing. It’s quite a cathartic experience I think, especially for our family.”
The film is built around hours of never-before-seen privately shot footage that Variety describes as taking “you up close to the person Heath Ledger was: a true free spirit, who lived without the rules most people in the entertainment business cling to – and without the boundaries.”
‘I Am Heath’ even includes a pic of a baby Heath dressed in a Batman costume, which Kate said on The Project was a “surreal experience for him to then go on and be in a Batman movie”, a.k.a. ‘The Dark Knight‘.
