Lindsay is a documentary series that premiered on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) in March 2014. It follows the life of actress Lindsay Lohan as she attempts to rebuild her career and reputation after a string of personal and legal issues. The series consists of eight episodes, each approximately one hour long. Throughout the course of the show, viewers are given unprecedented access into Lohan's life, both on and off set. From her struggles with sobriety to her attempts to find steady work, the series gives a raw and unfiltered look into the ups and downs of being a celebrity in today's world.
The series begins with Lindsay fresh out of rehab, eager to get her life back on track. She moves to New York, where she begins filming a docu-series for Oprah's network. This series is meant to chronicle her journey back to sobriety and her attempts to make a comeback in Hollywood.
As the series progresses, we see Lindsay struggle to find work and deal with the pressures of being a celebrity. She attends acting classes, auditions for roles, and begins a new relationship, all while trying to stay focused on her sobriety. Along the way, we also see glimpses of her personal life, including her father's attempts to reconnect with her and her ongoing conflicts with her family.
One of the most interesting aspects of the show is the way it juxtaposes Lindsay's public image with her private struggles. While many people know her as a wild party girl with a history of drug and alcohol abuse, Lindsay presents herself as someone who is committed to sobriety and eager to get back to work. However, the series shows that this is easier said than done, as Lindsay struggles to stay clean and find steady work in a cutthroat industry.
Perhaps most compelling of all is the way the series portrays the toll that all of this takes on Lindsay. In one episode, she breaks down in tears during an acting class, admitting that she is afraid she will never be able to overcome her past mistakes. In another, we see her struggle to maintain a long distance relationship with her boyfriend while dealing with the stresses of her career. Throughout it all, Lindsay portrays a woman who is determined to succeed, but also vulnerable and human.
Overall, Lindsay is a compelling look at the ups and downs of being a celebrity, as well as the challenges of addiction and recovery. While it is certainly not always easy to watch, it is both engaging and thought-provoking, and gives viewers a unique look into the life of one of Hollywood's most infamous stars.
