In this episode of More Movies Weekly, Greg and Dave discuss Respect (2021), the American biographical musical drama film based on the life of American singer Aretha Franklin. Directed by Liesl Tommy, the film stars Jennifer Hudson as Franklin, Forest Whitaker, Marlon Wayans, Audra McDonald, Marc Maron, Tituss Burgess and Mary J. Blige.
Following the rise of Aretha Franklin’s career – from a child singing in her father’s church choir to her international superstardom – the film charts the remarkable true story of the music icon’s journey to find her voice.
They also discuss the potential sequel to the new Dune (2021) film by Denis Villeneuve, news on Taylor Hackford‘s new film noir Sniff (2022) starring Helen Mirren, Al Pacino, Morgan Freeman and Danny DeVito, the sad deaths of Jean-Paul Belmondo and Michael K.
