Cadillac Records

December 15th, 2008 · No Comments

If your feet boggie to the beat of the blues, you’ll thrill to the tempo of Muddy Waters (Jeffrey Wright), Little Walter (Columbus Short), Chuck Berry (Mos Def) Willie Dixon (Cedric the Entertainer), Howlin’ Wolf (Eamonn Walker), and Etta James (Beyonce Knowles) showcased in the order they were discovered by record promoter/producer Leonard Chess (Adrien Brody).  Writer/Director, Darnell Martin deserves major credit for re-creating a piece of history with an astonishingly capable cast who are also credited with singing the songs required by their roles.
