What is ‘I Am: Celine Dion’ about?

Released on June 25, I Am: Celine Dion offers an intimate look at Dion’s journey in the spotlight, as well as her battle with stiff person syndrome. This rare neurological disorder, as explained by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, causes muscle stiffness and painful spasms, significantly impacting Dion’s daily life and career. Watch the trailer below:

Due to her condition, Dion had to cancel numerous shows on her world tour in 2023. However, she remains determined to return to performing. “I’m going to go back on stage, even if I have to crawl. Even if I have to talk with my hands, I will. I will,” Dion passionately stated in a recent interview with TODAY’s Hoda Kotb. Since its premiere, the film has received a 100% critic and audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

‘I Am: Celine Dion’ received viral reactions from fans

Fans have taken to social media to share their emotional responses to the documentary. One particularly poignant scene in the film featured Dion experiencing a medical crisis, prompting viewers to pause and gather themselves.

“Watched #IAmCelineDion documentary when it just came out. It’s hard to watch in some scenes, and it’s sad in some way. And as many said it is emotional rollercoaster,” one fan wrote on X (formerly Twitter).

“As a long time fan (since 1997) got mix feelings after watching. It is very honest & real. Love this woman.”

The film’s director, Irene Taylor, explained her decision to include such intense moments in the film. Speaking to The New York Times, she said, “I love my profession because I’m trying to access a human experience I may not have direct contact with. But if I don’t look away, if I look at this and I don’t flinch, it cultivates something in me that makes me try to understand that person better.”

The documentary has continued to strike a chord with many viewers, who now see Dion in a new light. One emotional fan wrote, “I can’t find the words to express how much I love and admire this woman. She is a force of nature.”

Another fan shared their reaction, “’If I can’t run I’ll walk If I can’t walk I’ll crawl but I won’t stop’ Haven’t stopped bawling! Love this Woman she is so real & brave. Thank you Celine for sharing your story with us. We your fans love you unconditionally.”

Dion’s vulnerability and strength have inspired many. Fans shared supportive messages, with one writing, “To say this was heartbreakingly beautiful is an understatement. Sharing such a private pivotal moment in her life is so courageous. She is one determined to step on that stage again. I knew I’d be emotional watching this, but not THAT emotional. 1000/10.”

Another fan echoed this sentiment, writing, “Seeing Celine suffer was terrible, I love you so much @celinedion.”
