Join us at participating Odeon Cinemas across the U.K & Ireland on Sunday 16th October for a special screening of Dreamgirls. The movie will be accompanied by an exclusive interview with the film’s Oscar-winning director, Bill Condon.
Dreamgirls is a 2006 American musical drama film written and directed by Bill Condon. Adapted from the 1981 Broadway musical of the same name, Dreamgirls is a film à clef, a work of fiction taking strong inspiration from the history of the Motown record label and one of its acts, the Supremes. The story follows the history and evolution of American R&B music during the 1960s and 1970s through the eyes of a Detroit girl group known as “The Dreams” and their record executive.
The film adaptation stars Jamie Foxx, Beyoncé Knowles and Eddie Murphy, and also features Jennifer Hudson, Danny Glover, Anika Noni Rose and Keith Robinson. The movie marked the acting debut of Jennifer Hudson, who won Best Supporting Actress at the 2007 Academy Awards (Oscars).
