It’s been nine years since the shocking death of Heath Ledger, and a stirring new film composed largely of the actor’s own footage brings back a lot of old emotions.
Directed by Adrian Buitenhuis and Derik Murray, I Am Heath Ledger premiered May 17 on Spike, and to no one’s surprise, hit audiences right where they felt it most.

Reactions ranged from your average dose of tears to proper devastation and rumination on Ledger’s tragically short life — he was 28 when he died of a drug overdose.
Ok. I am Heath Ledger just ruined me. He was so full of life 🙁 He radiated happiness 🙁 He was taken too early 🙁
