2-Disc Showstopper edition
Director Bill Condon brings Tom Eyen's Tony award-winning Broadway
musical to the big screen in a tale of dreams, stardom, and the high
cost of success in the cutthroat recording industry. The time is the
1960s, and singers Effie (Jennifer Hudson), Lorrell (Anika Noni Rose),
and Deena (Beyoncé Knowles) are about to find out just what
it's like to have their wildest dreams come true. Discovered at a local
talent show by ambitious manager Curtis Taylor Jr. (Jamie Foxx), the
trio known as "the Dreamettes" is soon offered the once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity of opening for popular singer James "Thunder" Early (Eddie
Murphy). Subsequently molded into an unstoppable hit machine by Taylor
and propelled into the spotlight as "the Dreams," the girls quickly
find their bid for the big time taking priority over personal
friendship as Taylor edges out the ultra-talented Effie so that the
more beautiful Deena can become the face of the group. Now, as the
crossover act continues to dominate the airwaves, the small-town girls
with big-city dreams slowly begin to realize that the true cost of fame
may be higher than any of them ever anticipated.
