Beyonce as Etta James in Cadillac Records

Quite surprisingly moved by the emotional clout of Cadillac Records, currently showing on Sky Premiere. Great cast: Jeffery Wright (Felix Leiter in Quantum of Solace) superb as Muddy Waters; Mos Def convinces as Chuck Berry, and as for Beyonce your heart out, Amy Winehouse! Really good film. Music, as Sam Philips said of Howlin' Wolf, "where the soul of man never dies."
