Dreamgirls. Bill Condon. 2006. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Loved how it ended on Foxx's "I Have Wasted My Life" realization but not enough real estate for the stories it's telling. A version centered 100% on Hudson would've been all-time, but you could've put primary focus on any of the characters and had a superior film. I think Murphy got the shortest shrift... his IRL analog seemed to change every other scene... one minute he's Marvin Gaye the next he's James Brown etc.
