We have rarely been so disappointed in a movie. While the atmosphere in this church in 1972 was really electric and entertaining, all but one of the hymns she sang were sung with lengthy pauses in between all the words. Heartfelt to be sure, but not recognizable. And boring. Such a wonderful singer, yet only the 3rd hymn had any tempo! This is not the way she sang it in the preview. We felt robbed.
A great highlight was Reverend L. C. Franklin, her father, a very interesting minister. He talked about her childhood, very moving. So a 2 out of 10 rating.
