I waited over a year for this movie, and it was worth it!!!
From the opening to the closing credits, this movie is exciting to watch and never disappoints. It has everything, great choreography great music (I normally dislike musicals), nice plot, and very good actors.
It opens with the saying that the world is a stage and the men and women are just actors, it goes on to show two very different friends grow up and deal with the choices they've made, or in some cases haven't made. It has the usual elements of a movie; love, loss, betrayal, murder, but what makes this movie stand out is the visual and audial stimulation, the 1920's/30's costumes which weren't afraid to show a woman's femininity and the men who didn't leave the house unless they were "suited" up. The stage performances were a little wild (and so is Outkast, which makes then so great) and unusual. I love Roosters' last performance. Outkast has a way of stating the obvious about life, but in a light you normally wouldn't see it in.
I highly recommend this movie, and don't leave until the very last words have rolled off the screen!
