the turbulent late 1960s and early ‘70s, “Dreamgirls” follows the rise of
a trio of women—Effie (Jennifer
Hudson), Deena (Beyoncé
Knowles) and Lorrell
(Anika Noni Rose)—who have formed a promising girl group called The Dreamettes.
At a talent competition, they are discovered by an ambitious manager named
Curtis Taylor, Jr. (Jamie Foxx), who offers them the opportunity of a lifetime:
to become the back-up singers for headliner James “Thunder” Early (Eddie
Murphy). Curtis gradually takes control of the girls’ look and sound,
eventually giving them their own shot in the spotlight as The Dreams. That
spotlight, however, begins to narrow in on Deena, finally pushing the less
attractive Effie out altogether. Though the Dreams become a crossover
phenomenon, they soon realize that the cost of fame and fortune may be higher
than they ever imagined.
