Before her death in 2009, Brittany Murphy appeared in one last film, shot in Eugene. The movie premieres April 4 in Eugene, followed April 11 in Portland and April 18 in Seattle.

Producer Joe Colleran said Murphy, who appeared in such films as "Clueless" and "8 Mile," did not want to appear glamourous in the film, portraying a broken woman as she unravels.

That the film was Murphy's final performance made the editing process difficult, he said.

"Just emotional to go through the editing process and hearing her voice and seeing her outtakes and laughing," Colleran said. "So it's been an emotional process just even trying to get that together."
