Beginning in 1952 and following her career throughout the second half of the 20th century, ‘Respect’ is the story of Aretha Franklin, one of America’s most iconic singer-songwriters. After her father discovers her magnificent vocal range during a visit to church at 10 years old, Aretha’s career begins to take off. An unsteady relationship with her father and an outwardly abusive one with her husband and manager Ted White threatens to overshadow her music, but Aretha perseveres despite the volatility of racial injustice sweeping through America during this time. Filled with some of the most recognisable songs of the era, including the title song Aretha is most remembered for, the film also aims to explore the hardships and abuse faced by women in the entertainment industry.
