Flawed but a great central performance Kermode said, have to agree with him.  Enjoyed the film though and it is hard to get what she has done even in the years it covered into two hours.

Saw it last night.

It was a bit patchy. The music was great and Hudson gave a wonderful performance - she really is one helluva singer. 

These films are difficult to pull off, particularly when you are trying to tell the story of a life and career spanning 30 odd years. This one was only partially satisfying I felt.

My thoughts:

Probably one for the cinema as cinematography is great.
Young Aretha is a fantastic actress.
Forest is his usual brilliant self.
Jennifer is OK, much better singer than actor but was Aretha 'chosen one' for the part.
You won't learn anything much new about AF, needs a 'part two'
