This intimate portrait reveals the story of an unapologetic rock ‘n’ roller, actress, muse, and mother who rose to prominence in the 1960s and 1970s. Drawing on words from her unpublished memoir, narrated by actress Scarlett Johansson, Anita draws us deep into her world, with the help of a supporting cast that includes her family – Marlon, Angela, and their father Keith Richards.

A black-and-white image of 4 individuals lounging in a front room there is a mirror on the wall central showing the reflection of the individual taking the picture.

Never-seen-before home movies and family photographs explore life with the Rolling Stones, in a bittersweet tale of both triumph and heartbreak. From Barbarella to the Swiss Alps, and the Lower East Side of New York, Anita Pallenberg was a woman ahead of her time.
