WATCHINGRespect is a 2021 American biographical musical drama film and is based on the life of American singer Aretha Franklin. The film stars Jennifer Hudson as Franklin, with Forest Whitaker, Marlon Wayans, Audra McDonald, Marc Maron, Tituss Burgess, and Mary J. Blige in supporting roles. The film follows the first three decades of Franklin's life, from being born as a musical prodigy in an affluent African-American family, the repercussions of losing her mother at age 10 to her arduous rise to international musical stardom, while enduring an abusive marriage, ultimately concluding with the recording of her influential live album Amazing Grace (1972).
Chicago - how have we never seen this either on stage or screen???? The original play was 1975 and the movie 2003. In 2001 right after 9/11 we had gone to NYC (remember their campaign to get tourists back to the city?) with friends. They went to see Chicago while we went to see Rocky Horror Picture Show (no regrets!). OMG the stars in this movie and the incredible job they did!! Queen Lafitah and
Renée Zellweger were my favourites along with Richard Gere!!
We are going to see the play at Stratford this weekend and I am so excited.
We also watched West Side Story.
New expression to me - don't let the door knob hit you where the good Lord split you.
I tried to read Reckless Girls, but honestly I gave up. I was not interested in a bunch of shallow 20 somethings full of angst and drama bored me to tears.
I read Five Days Missing instead, which I enjoyed although it did drag out a little!
I started The Nurse by Claire Allan, so far so good.
