Don Cheadle's electrifying portrayal of ex-con Petey Greene, who became an influential, controversial disc jockey in 1960s Washington, D.C., as well as a beloved community activist, cues this charged, fact-based biopic. Cheadle perfectly captures Greene's tell-it-like-it-is bluntness and candor. Chiwetel Ejiofor, Taraji P. Henson, Martin Sheen, Mike Epps. Directed by Kasi Lemmons. Features an excellent period soundtrack that includes James Brown, the Dramatics and Otis Redding.
