Sure one of the better movies this fall, but played the card. Yes, being a black man white man relationship story was not enough... and why nothing about the 'role' or lack thereof of his bandmates? Left me with questions. Plus the bar scene seemed like total Hollywood BS is it real -I don't know- but diminishes the power of the story with such a Hollywood scene, where he gets to either a) express his repressed inner blackness or b) just pose/play along for the Black crowd like he does for the White crowd. This after some how not knowing who/about the famous Motown acts of the day?
