RESPECT | Official Trailer | MGM Studios

Respect is the remarkable true story of legendary music star Aretha Franklin's journey to find her voice in the midst of the turbulent social and political landscape of 1960s America. The film follows the rise of her career from a young child singing in her father's church's choir to her international superstardom as the Queen of Soul. More than a conventional biopic, it gives a sense of Franklin as a historical figure, a crossover success story and a full-throttle, fur-draped diva. Academy Award-winner Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls)—handpicked by Franklin—headlines an all-star cast that includes Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland), Mary J. Blige, Marlon Wayans and four-time Emmy-nominee Tituss Burgess. D: Liesl Tommy, US, 2021
