Her voice changed everything.

“Respect” is the remarkable true story of legendary music star Aretha Franklin’s journey to find her voice in the midst of the turbulent social and political landscape of 1960s America. Academy Award®-winner Jennifer Hudson (2007, Best Supporting Actress, “Dreamgirls”) — handpicked by Franklin — headlines an all-star cast that includes Oscar®-winner Forest Whitaker (2007, Best Actor, “The Last King of Scotland”), Mary J. Blige, Marlon Wayans and four-time Emmy®-nominee Tituss Burgess.

Aretha Franklin sings in her father’s church choir as a child and grows up to become an international musical superstar and the Queen of Soul, while simultaneously enduring an abusive marriage, constraints of patriarchy and also being actively involved in the civil rights movement.

Reviews:

Hudson is the perfect choice to live Aretha Franklin’s story with powerful acting and vocals that sound authentic but not copied. Chicago Sun-Times
Hudson hits all the right notes as a natural-born talent struggling to find her voice — and power — as a singer, a woman and an African American who deserves, and ultimately demands, respect. AARP Movies for Grownups
