This movie stars Queen Latifah as Bessie, a Blues singer from the 1920’s who makes her way to become a legend. Queen Latifah is amazing, I am never disappointed in her work, and she played this part perfectly. I did feel like this movie wanted to be just like every other movie though. As there was nothing very original about it.
Grisham thought the acting was good, he liked the setting, but thought that it ended kind of quickly. It was a good period piece.
Grisham – 8.5/10
