A brand-new documentary about star Faye Dunaway is coming to HBO and Max this year. The HBO Original documentary, simply titled Faye, was directed and produced by Laurent Bouzereau and will debut at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival.

In the film, Academy Award-winning actress Dunaway opens up about her career, including all of the highs and lows. She famously starred in films such as Chinatown, Bonnie & Clyde and Mommie Dearest. Dunaway admitted that she believes playing Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest was a career misstep as she details other regrets in the documentary. Dunaway began her career on Broadway, appearing in plays such as A Man For All Seasons.
