This warts-and-all Tina Turner biopic depicts her trials and tribulations as a black woman pursuing success in the music industry. We see Turner attempt to escape Ike’s violence and influence to claim rock goddess status. Angela Bassett and Laurence Fishburne’s stellar performances, as Anna Mae Bullock and Ike Turner, earned them both Best Actor Oscar® nominations.
