About the Movie
In his follow-up to the four-time Academy Award-nominated blockbuster The Help, Tate Taylor directs 42's Chadwick Boseman as James Brown in Get On Up. Based on the incredible life story of the Godfather of Soul, the film will give a fearless look inside the music, moves, and moods of Brown, taking audiences on the journey from his impoverished childhood to his evolution into one of the most influential figures of the 20th century. Boseman is joined in the drama by Nelsan Ellis, Dan Aykroyd, Viola Davis, Craig Robinson, Octavia Spencer, Lennie James, Tika Sumpter and Jill Scott.

My Take on the Movie
WOW! This was a movie that opened up the life of such an iconic person. While I did not know a lot about James Brown, this movie really made me reconsider what I thought I knew about the man and his music. You really see James Brown as a visionary in this movie and you see him as fearless in all of the risks that he took as he stood up to people that told him that he could not or should not do what he felt that he should. This was a great movie that will make you want to know more about this amazing musician!
