Beyoncé and Jennifer Hudson give powerhouse performances in this screen adaption of the smash-hit Broadway show.
Dir Bill Condon
With Beyoncé Knowles, Jennifer Hudson, Jamie Foxx, Eddie Murphy
Beyoncé may have received top billing in this rapturously mounted adaption of the successful Broadway show (and she’s pretty amazing), but there’s absolutely no doubt as to whose movie it is – as testified by the deluge of awards Jennifer Hudson received for her performance as Effie. Loosely based on the rise to fame of The Supremes, Dreamgirls is packed full of great numbers, with Hudson’s rendition of ‘And I Am Telling You’ worth the ticket price alone.
