The story of the life and career of the legendary rhythm and blues musician Ray Charles, from his humble beginnings in the South, where he went blind at age seven, to his meteoric rise to stardom during the 1950s and 1960s.
In the scene where Marcus says "Crack meant money, money meant power, power meant war," a blue 1965 4 door Impala drives up to 3 guys standing on the side walk. when the scene switches to showing those guys being shot the car changes to a Blue 1964 4 door Impala. See more »

This movie is horrendous. The terrific directing cannot separate the fact that this movie is perhaps one of the worst 'I sell records, why not make an album?' movies ever. He cannot act, sounds like he is reading his lines from a textbook, and his feelings range from dumb to ohmygod! The visual style of this movie acts, and the whole film seems like a horrible stereotype developed by racists (of all colors) who see inner city blacks as nothing but criminals. It is a shame that nice movies set to an African American theme flop, but movies that showcase the worst in society that affect kids do so well.
If you act like a criminal, you will be rich. Nice.
