(Real) Talk Radio
Last night my wife and i rented Talk To Me, the story of ex-con-turned-radio personality, talk show host and community activist Petey Green. set firmly in Civil Rights/Berry Gordy era DC, this film is masterfully written, directed, and acted.
Petey's story is sure to relate to hipHop fans with his fast-but-always-real talk. Veteran actor Don Cheadle plays Green, a born Hustler who effectively talks his way out of a 5 to 10 prison bid when he meets the sharp-dressed radio exec Dewey Hughes, played by Chiwetel Ejiofor (Four Brothers, Serenity, Inside Man, Children of Men), who inadvertently gives Petey the Idea that he'll hook him up with an on-air gig when he gets out.
The Movie is a story of relationships: Petey's relationship with his community, with Hughes, with his woman, played brilliantly by Teraji P. Henson (Hustle and Flow, Baby Boy, Smokin' Aces, Four Brothers)... and all the characters' relationships to each other and the growing consciousness of the Civil Rights movement. this is the best film i've seen so far from director Kasi Lemmons (Eve's Bayou, Dr. Hugo, The Caveman's Valentine), who gets authentic, rich performances from comedians Cedric the Entertainer and Mike Epps (fabulous as Hughes' brother in Prison) and guides the film on an atypical path, while preserving the depth of emotion in the script.
if you're looking for a good movie to buy, or at least rent on DVD... i recommend Talk To Me.
