From The Booth

Aretha Franklin gave us so much amazing music that it was only a matter of time before a film was made about her life and music. The film may not challenge the now traditional music bio film format, but that cannot deter from Jennifer Hudson's remarkable portrayal of Ms Franklin.

"A powerful account of self-actualization spanning 20 formative years, Liesl Tommy’s biopic is also an intimate gift of love, rich in complexity, spirituality, Black pride and feminist grit rooted not in didactic speeches but in authentic experience. The ageless music, of course, is the galvanizing force, but it’s the personal struggle behind it that makes the story so affecting."  - David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
