Brittany Murphy broke out in a big way with her scene-stealing turn in Clueless – her second credited acting performance, but her first real speaking part. She had real screen presence and it felt like she was at the beginning of what would be a long, interesting career. Tragically, Murphy died only 14 years after her big break, with her cause of death officially listed as pneumonia, at the way-too-young age of 32. Murphy’s sudden, premature death led to several different conspiracy theories that have unfortunately overshadowed her life and career. Now, a two-part HBO Max documentary will explore Murphy’s life – and will also attempt to tackle the mysterious circumstances surrounding her death.
