A glossy, unashamedly feel-good 1960s-set musical drama that charts the meteoric rise of a fictitious girl-group, and warns of the dangers of selling your soul for fame and fortune.

First-time actress Jennifer Hudson won an Oscar for her incredible performance as the group's lead singer, Effie White.
