|Chronicles the rise and fall of pop king michael jackson.|
Editor's NoteThis made-for-television movie stars Fay Alexander as pop icon and muse for the tabloid press, Michael Jackson. From his turbulent upbringing and early success as the star of the Jackson Five, to his wildly successful career as a solo artist in the 1980s, through the scandals that have overshadowed his music career throughout the late 1990s and into the 21st century, Jackson has lived up to his title of "entertainer" by maintaining the public's interest. Covering all the topics that come to mind when one thinks of this superstar, MAN IN THE MIRROR is careful not to choose sides, maintaining an objective, humorous perspective on a personal life that became public drama. When THRILLER was released in 1982, Jackson was at the height of his musical career, recognized for his undeniable talent and infectious stage persona. Winning over fans worldwide with his now-famous "moonwalk," Jackson quickly became a true pop icon. Upon entering middle age, Jackson was no less famous, but was discussed more in terms of allegations concerning plastic surgery and child abuse than for his actual music. However, one thing is for sure--whether it's through his music, or with the page-six frenzy that surrounds him, Jackson has always commanded the world's fullest attention.
