Playboy model and television personality Anna Nicole Smith is the star of Netflix’s new documentary film Anna Nicole Smith: You Don’t Know Me. The feature, directed by Ursula Macfarlane, features people from Smith’s life who shed light on what the star was really like.
Her death in 2007 and the legal tumult leading up to it were a big part of Smith’s public legacy, but she was obviously much more than that, and the documentary really takes viewers behind the scenes of her life, featuring lots of archival footage and interviews with people who knew her like her brothers and friends.
There were a lot of dark and tragic moments in Anna Nicole Smith’s life, and the doc does not shy away from them. We also spend time learning about her Playboy career and her sexuality, so it might not be appropriate for young viewers.
