It's been more than 5 years since Courtney Love has been seen in public with her estranged daughter, Frances Bean Cobain. But the pair were all smiles for the camera at Saturday's world premiere screening of the upcoming Kurt Cobain documentary, "Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck" at the Sundance Film Festival.
The film was directed by Brett Morgen, who worked on it on and off for more than eight years.
Here's Courtney and Frances smiling for the camera.
And Frances with Morgen.
And just Frances
According to Billboard, the film will be a treasure trove for Nirvana fans and includes Cobain's acoustic cover of the Beatles' "And I Love" her and nearly a half-hour of the late star's spoken and musical recordings, many taken from his personal journals and tapes. It pieces together Cobain's life using everything from childhood home movies to vintage concert footage, interviews and visits to iconic stepping stones on the troubled singer's rise to fame.
Among the revelations:
>> He loved the bands the Stooges, Flipper and Bad Brains as a teen, as well as classic rockers Creedence Clearwater Revival.
>> He made lots of lists, including the 6 things the "Smells Like Teen Spirit" video needed to have to succeed and tips for being a popular band, such as "practice five times a week" and rent the cult movie "Eraserhead."
>> Not only did he not want to talk about Nirvana's music in interviews, he made clear in his journals how much he believed "it's all in the music" and nothing more needs to be said. "I feel like I'm being evaluated 24 hours a day," he writes. "I feel violated" is another emphasized entry.
>> The movie has several scenes of Cobain as a doting father to Frances.
