"Hudson sure steps up to the challenge, dazzling with the song that lends its name to the film's title"
★★★★ Stephen A. Russell, Time Out

"“Hudson is the perfect choice to live Aretha Franklin's story with powerful acting and vocals that sound authentic but not copied.”
★★★★ Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

"This stuff all makes for good enough, watchable drama. But Respect is never better -- Hudson is never better -- than when the movie sets aside the bullet points to delve into the talent."
K. Austin Collins, Rolling Stone

RESPECT is the remarkable true story of legendary music star Aretha Franklin’s journey to find her voice in the midst of the turbulent social and political landscape of 1960s America. Academy Award®-winner Jennifer Hudson (2007, Best Supporting Actress, "Dreamgirls") -- handpicked by Franklin -- headlines an all-star cast that includes Oscar®-winner Forest Whitaker (2007, Best Actor, "The Last King of Scotland"), Mary J. Blige, Marlon Wayans and four-time Emmy®-nominee Tituss Burgess.
