Movie Preview: “Respect,” the full trailer

This is now slated for August. Respect my need to see this in a theater and wear a mask until all doubt and COVID vanish.

Jennifer Hudson, Audra MacDonald as her mom, Forrest Whitaker, and in a cleverly apt bit of casting. Marc Maron is producer Jerry Wexler, the one person in this story I met and interviewed.

The director has Dolly Parton movies and “Walking Dead” on her resume. Perfect.

(UPDATE: Roger Moore’s review of “Respect,” opening Aug. 13, is here)
