Get it together, People! Before DREAMGIRLS (2006), there was SPARKLE (1976)! OKAY!!! Where do I begin? ORIGINAL INSPIRATION ON EVERY LEVEL OF CREATIVITY FOR ME!!! The very first musical movie I was taken to at the age of 5!
If you like musical movies you will like this one, but keep in mind that this is another old movie. Sit at home with no distraction and enjoy. My sister and I use to pretend that we were the singers. I know ever song word from word
Melancholy story about abused talent and the ability to live on past tragedy. This one made me want to put on pretty dresses & sing too. Irene Cara was made for the role of Sparkle...just sweet. Philip Michhael Thomas was a cutie..
Sparkle is an amazing film. It is about a girl group who experiences turmoil after one of their members turns to drugs and another achieves their desired fame all by herself. Phillip Michael Thomas and Irene Cara give terrific performances. The screenplay is well written. Sam O'Steen did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this movie because of the drama and music. Sparkle is a must see.
I LOVE Sparkle! Technologically, it may not be a great film, but despite some of it's flaws, it has become a staple in the African-American community. A true cult classic that everyone should see. AND THE MUSIC IS HYPNOTIC!
I love this movie. The three actresses played these roles so well. My favorite character is Sister, even though she died in the movie. We can all especially women learn from this. An abusive man is a coward. And that fame doesn't always bring greatness.
