“Respect” is a quiet Biopic about Aretha Franklin the Queen of Soul.

The movie follows the rise of the Queen of Soul, from a young Aretha singing in her father’s church choir, to the adult Aretha who garners international fame and stardom. It’s a remarkable story of a woman on the journey to find her voice.

I can honestly say that Jennifer Hudson’s performance in this movie DEMANDS “Respect”. The music and performances were on point. Jennifer Hudson as Aretha Franklin was awesome. Where the movie falls short is the direction and the screenplay.

I can say that regardless of the holes in the direction and screenplay, Jennifer Hudson’s performance did Aretha Franklin proud and is worth seeing if you are an Aretha Franklin fan. I was hopping in my seat to music. There is a “Live” performance of Aretha Franklin herself at the end of the movie footage. It’s definitely worth seeing.

“Respect” is only playing in Theaters! Go see it!!

4 Stars for Jennifer Hudson’s Performance!!
