This biopic tells the story of legendary US singer-songwriter Aretha Franklin (Jennifer Hudson) as she attempts to find her voice in 1960’s America and make her mark on the music industry. Respect follows the rise of Franklin’s soul career — from a child singing in her father’s church choir to her international stardom. With a star-studded line-up featuring Forest Whitaker, Marlon Wayans, Audra McDonald, Tituss Burgess and Mary J. Blige, this biopic is set to be the ultimate tribute to the shining star, who was involved in its production before her death in 2018.
