Remembering dad! On Saturday, Jan. 24, Courtney Love and her daughter Frances Bean Cobain posed together on the red carpet at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. 

 The pair hugged and smiled for cameras, but their appearance was bittersweet. Frances, 22, was the executive producer for the documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, which followed the life of her late father, Nirvana rocker Kurt Cobain

"So sad @brettmorgen @alka_seltzer666 [Frances Bean Cobain] so so sad yet so uplifting, beautiful and gorgeous. Your daddy would be so proud of you baby. thank u," Love, 50, tweeted after seeing the film. 

Director Brett Morgan spoke to Us Weekly at the event, saying, "First Courtney was involved, then Frances became involved. Frances Bean is really why we're all here. This movie is for her. Frances and I shared the exact same vision about what this film should be, everybody came on board." 

The Hole singer married Cobain in February 1992 and in August of that year, Frances was born. After a Vanity Fair article in which Love admitted to using heroin while pregnant, the Los Angeles County Department of Children's Services took the couple to court. Frances was removed from their care for four weeks, but was later reunited with her parents after an agreement was made that the Cobains would take regular drug tests. In 1994 Cobain committed suicide at the age of 27.
