DREAMGIRLS is a musical masterwork that dazzles and delights in every frame. The film shines a spotlight on the talents of Bill Condon, who expands and enriches a legendary stage production while invoking the spirit of Broadway's Michael Bennett. The result is an explosion of passion and power, an anthem to the outsider and a celebration of friendship that hits every note. Jennifer Hudson's triumphant debut is one for the ages, and the film's brilliant creative ensemble - a dream team of talent - deserves a standing ovation as the credits roll.
