    Synopsis


    Idlewild
    OutKast duo André "Andre 3000" Benjamin and Antwan Andre "Big Boi" Patton star as two Prohibition-era performers determined to fend off the vicious gangsters currently attempting to gain a stake in the pair's lucrative club in this musical drama directed by longtime collaborator Bryan Barber and featuring choreography by three-time Tony award winner Hinton Battle. In the 1930s, Idlewild was the hottest speakeasy in the South thanks to the impressive showmanship of flamboyant manager/lead performer Rooster (Patton) and the notable talents of introverted pianist Percival (Benjamin). Everything changes, however, when a powerful gangster and his ruthless henchmen move in on the scene with every intention of landing a healthy portion of the club's considerable profits. Ving Rhames, Terrence Howard, Faizon Love, Patti LaBelle, Macy Gray, Ben Vereen, and Cicely Tyson co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Andre Stick to Music Please

      This was a very poor job of trying to make a movie that was set in a prior time period. Too much singing and gyrating and a very weak story line. When the notes on the sheet music came to life and started dancing, I told my BF it was time to go home!! However, I am not shocked nor am I appalled that Andre would do this type of movie...Outkast has changed from really good to really awful so it makes sense that they would do this kind of movie....

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Outkast and Bryan Barber brings you laughter, dancing, singing and acting to this wonderfully done musical that you could possibly call, 'a movie within videos.' Even if your not a fan of musicals, but love the whole Outkast Movement than this is the movie to pick up.
