Movie Preview: Jennifer Hudson is defiant, proud and Aretha demanding “Respect”

I like the way this trailer plays to the #Blacklivesmatter moment.

Two Oscar winners — Jennifer Hudson, Forest Whitaker — with Marlon Wayans and this clever bit of casting, Marc Maron as the pushy/charming producer and genius-BEHIND-the-genius Jerry Wexler — are the highlights of this cast.

The director of the winning “Jessica Jones,” a couple of screenwriters not listed on the IMDb page (yet) and that cast give this December release some promise.

“You have to disturb the peace, when you can’t get no peace.”

(UPDATE: Roger Moore’s review of the “Crowdpleaser” “Respect” is here.)
