Respect (Netflix Disc(:

Following the rise of Aretha Franklin’s career from a child singing in her father’s church’s choir to her international superstardom, RESPECT is the remarkable true story of the music icon’s journey to find her voice.

Jennifer Hudson was the right choice for the role of Aretha. This movie does not hide the ugly, however, it still plays out like a Behind The Music episode. I really liked it for the little things. The tweaks Muscle Shoals does for her first hit, for example. You can FEEL the moment that it all comes together. That’s the stuff that makes this movie work. Watch through the credits, it is amazing how her voice kept up until the day she passed. There’s no real wavering, she was still belting it out. Highly recommend.
