If you love music, this movie is perfect. You get the history along with great performances from some of the best actors of our time. Adrian Brody and Jeffrey Wright are wonderful actors no matter what movies they are in, but this shows how sexy Adrian is and showcases Jeffery's MANY talents. Columbus Short, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Gabrielle Union and Beyoncé Knowles support this movie with pitch perfect performances; and Mos Def has proved he is here to stay. Eamonn Walker plays Howling Wolf, and if you didn't know his name before from HBO's OZ you will remember it now. He is not only a beautiful man, but what a great actor. This movie has everything a great "based on a true story" movie should have. Go to see this and learn the true history of some great music and have a good time in the process.

I personally loved the movie.
every actor in the movie,was fantastic.
I think people underestimated Beyonce in the acting field,
and in my opion she proved them all wrong.
She did outstanding,and the music(from everyone) was remarkable.

This movie was of interest to anyone interested in the Blues. Also some great vintage automobiles. Lots of sex, drugs, violence. My son and I were able to discuss afterwards a common interest in music, and the pitfalls that people living that life should avoid. Thumbs up on this one.

This is a really good movie espeicially for the older generation. The only song I really knew was At Last by Etta James. I enjoyed all the songs and the characters. I think this was Beyonce's best movie. This is a must see, it should have been advertised more...
