Twenty-five years after first bringing Broadway audiences to their feet, the Tony-award winning musical sensation 'Dreamgirls' comes to the big screen starring Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx, Beyonce Knowles, Danny glover, Jennifer Hudson, Tony Award winner Anika Noni Rose and Eddie Murphy. Set in the turbulent 1960s and early 70s, 'Dreamgirls' follows the rise of a trio of women, who have formed a promising girl group called the Dreamettes. At a talent competition, they are discovered by an ambitious manager named Curtis Taylor Jr., who offers them the opportunity of a lifetime: to become the backup singers for headliner James 'Thunder' Early. Curtis gradually takes control of the girls' look and sound, eventually giving them their own shot in the spotlight as the Dreams. That spotlight, however, begins to narrow in on Deena, gradually pushing the less attractive Effie out altogether. Though the Dreams become a crossover phenomenon, they soon realize that the cost of fame and fortune may be higher than they ever imagined.
