When Jermaine arrives at the Jackson house to sign the CBS contract, he is shown driving up in his convertible, his hair is in a shorter, tighter afro. When he is shown inside the house, his afro is much longer. See more »
This movie is terrific. The Director lets the story unfold without resorting to histrionics. The different boys playing Michael are all wonderful and evoke the charm that made the real 10 year old into a star. Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs does wonderful work portraying a man that many have vilified without adding his own judgment.
Special mention should be made to the choreography: Michael Peters does an excellent job of recreating the signature moves of the Jackson 5, and the scene with Jackie Wilson subtly suggests many of the steps that a real-life Michael Jackson uses.
I enjoy this movie and can't wait to see it again.
