HD

It's the mid-1960s. Detroit-based The Dreamettes, a black girl singing group, is comprised of lead Effie White, and her backup singers Deena Jones and Lorrell Robinson. They are struggling to make a name for themselves despite their talent. At a local talent competition, they are approached by Curtis Taylor Jr., a used car salesman who wants to break into the music business on the management side. He offers them a job singing backup for James "Thunder" Early, a renowned local black performer who has more of a reputation as a married man seducing his backup singers than his onstage actions, hence the reason he is having problems finding those backup singers. The girls reluctantly accept the offer, that reluctance based on Effie in particular not seeing themselves as backups to anyone else. In making a name for himself and the girls, Curtis brings along for the ride Effie's songwriting brother C.C., and in the process also takes over Jimmy's career. Despite embarking on a sexual relationship, Curtis and Effie, both strong personalities, begin to have diverging views of what it takes to make it in the business, Curtis who sees them needing to break what is racial barrier by sounding more mainstream or "white" . The others have to decide what to do, and to who their loyalties lie as they try to make it to the top. Those views may change over time with the onset of the seventies and the change of mainstream musical tastes to disco, and as they see the view from the top in trying to stay there as opposed to looking at the top from the bottom....

Review

Dreamgirls is one of these movies you want to watch over and over again. The best movie online? This is an answer that has been changed many times in my life and probably will change many more times. But at this moment for me it is Dreamgirls. I sat for a long time after I ended watching Dreamgirls, reflecting on my life. The real power of this production is an acting game of actor and others, that is amazing. I did not know anything about this movie before, I did not even see a trailer, but I enjoyed it very much in the first place. The atmosphere I created in that room last week was great. I did not find this movie elsewhere, so I decided to upload it to this website.... Show more
