The trailer for The Ringer’s latest Music Box documentary on HBO, Jagged which looks at the life of Alanis Morissette and her game changing 1995 album Jagged Little Pill.

The film features Alanis herself in candid interview and discusses multiple instances where men took advantage of her when she was 15.

In an email statement given to The Washington Post, Morissette said she was “unhappy with the movie for allegedly misrepresenting the truth” after her notable absence from the film’s premier at TIFF on September 13 held just 5 hours from her hometown of Ottawa.

Morissette also told the publication that she will not be publicizing the film and has yet to give an interview in the leadup to its release.

Morissette says in the film:

“It took me years in therapy to even admit there had been any kind of victimization on my part […] I would always say I was consenting, and then I’d be reminded like ‘Hey, you were 15, you’re not consenting at 15.’ Now I’m like, ‘Oh yeah, they’re all pedophiles. It’s all statutory rape.”

Bill Simmons’ produced Music Box doc series will also release documentaries on Kenny G and DMX for HBO, joining their excellent Woodstock 99 feature.

Before the statement was received, Alison Klayman said she had hopes Morissette would embrace the doc also saying, “It was a privilege to make this film and I’m really proud of it.”
