“I spent my life owing people things and doing whatever they wanted,” Shields says in a new teaser dropped Wednesday morning. “I finally asked myself, ‘What will I be if I don’t allow that anymore?’”
Shields frequently recalls interactions with adult male crew members from her childhood. Shields, then just 15 years old, had to play a s*xual role in the film “Blue Lagoon,” despite having never had intercourse with a guy before. The late Italian director Franco Zeffirelli started twisting Shields’ toe as punishment for inaccurately portraying s*x in their upcoming film Endless Love.
“Zeffirelli kept grabbing my toe and, like, twisting it so that I had a look of… I guess ecstasy?” Shields recalls in the documentary. “But it was more angst than anything because he was hurting me.”
The documentary also highlights Shields’s tumultuous connection with her mother, Teri Shields, who functioned as a devoted but alcoholic manager, and her illicit encounters with older men. According to Shields, Teri, who passed away in 2012, was a confident, determined stage parent.
One scene in the documentary features a clip of Barbara Walters asking Teri, “Can’t someone say to you that you are exploiting the sensuality of a child?” Teri answers, “If that’s all I was doing, probably, yes. But that’s not all I’m doing with Brooke or what Brooke is doing.”
