Kate and I watched Dreamgirls (2006) on Friday evening. I’d picked it up on Bluray a few months ago, but only now got around to watching it. And what an excellent film! Based on a 1970s Broadway musical, it is a fictionalised story of the Supremes and Motown. It features a splendid cast (including Jennifer Hudson, Jamie Foxx, Beyoncé Knowles, and Eddie Murphy), and super songs. One can see why Hudson won an Oscar for her performance.

For me, musicals are like films but with emotion that works. I’ll look forward to watching it again.
