What do you remember about Britney Spears? Watching the much-talked about documentary Framing Britney Spears, which debuts tonight on Sky and Now TV a week after landing in the US, makes you realize you’ve been fed a narrative about Britney Spears’ life – even if you’re only vaguely aware of her two-plus decades in the spotlight. 

Part of The New York Times Presents series, this sympathetic documentary explores the ways in which the gross celebrity tabloid culture of the ’00s tried its hardest to damage Britney Spears: by following her around and obsessively photographing her most vulnerable moments for profit, and by controlling how events in her personal life were perceived by the public. You’ll be hard-pressed not to feel angry after watching it.
