The story of three people who strive to realize their dreams. Brothers Carter and Ellis set out on a road trip to their childhood home in a desperate search for their estranged father, who may hold the key to their future.
Billie Frank is a shy, young multiracial girl who is sent away by her alcoholic mother at a very early age. At an orphanage, she befriends Louise and Roxanne. Flash forward to 1983. Billie and her friends are spotted by a record producer, Timothy Walker, who wants them to sing backup for his latest pop-music discovery. But when super DJ Julian Dice hears Billie's incredible voice, he makes a shady deal with Timothy to get her out of that dead-end situation. Soon, Billie and Dice are making hits inside the studio, and falling in love outside of it. Eventually, the pressure of her newfound celebrity puts too heavy a strain on Billie, forcing her to decide what it is she really wants from Dice, and what she wants for herself.Written by
No one knows how Max Beesley who plays "Julian Dice" got in and out of his leather pants in the film. Many speculate that he never took them off and wears other jeans over the famous leather pants. See more »
When Billie sings "I Didn't Mean to Turn You On" on stage for the first time, the microphone cord wrapped around her hand and arm, and her hands on the microphone pole change position in every shot. See more »

I personally feel that Ms Carey took a bad rap for this film. "Glitter" really isn't as bad as the critic's wrote in their reviews. Sure this movie was not of the caliber of an Oscar nominated film, but it was fairly well acted, and entertaining. I honestly feel had Jennifer Lopez been in the starring role as opposed to Mariah Carey, no one would have had a problem with the film. I gives kudos to the cast and crew of this film. A grossly underrated film.
