Directed by Robert Townsend | 1991

With Townsend, Michael Wright, Leon

They sang their way from rags to riches, but at what price? Written by director Robert Townsend (Hollywood Shuffle) and Keenen Ivory Wayans, this Motown-inspired star-is-born saga charts the rise and fall of a Temptations-esque vocal group in the 1960s, with a rousing, period-perfect soundtrack to match. Look out for a special appearance from dance legend Harold Nicholas as the group’s choreographer.
