Excellent!!! Jamie Foxx does such a magnificent job of portraying Ray Charles in this movie that you completely forget it’s Jamie Foxx. This movie shows the life of Ray Charles Robinson from his early childhood through the ’50s and ’60s. It shows how he dealt with all the issues (sex, drugs, family, racism, etc.) that he had to face as he developed his musical career. The music, a lot of which is performed by Jamie Foxx, is wonderfully exhibited throughout the movie. Although he created many of the challenges he had to overcome (aside from the blindness and racism), he still came out on top. I recommend this movie to anyone who has enjoyed the music of Ray Charles in their lifetime. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
