Synopsis


Ray
Directed by Taylor Hackford, this biopic profiles the life of legendary musician Ray Charles. Despite humble beginnings and the loss of his eyesight due to glaucoma at the age of six, Charles, depicted by Jamie Foxx, would nonetheless become an icon in both the music industry and the civil rights era. While the film delves into his problems with drugs and women, the bulk of the story details his career; among the highlights of that career are 12 Grammy awards and 11 R&B chart-toppers, such as "Unchain My Heart," "Hit the Road, Jack," "Georgia," "Doin' the Mess Around," and "Hallelujah I Just Love Her So." Also among the cast are Larenz Tate as Quincy Jones, as well as Regina King, Kerry Washington, and Clifton Powell. Charles' son, Ray Charles Jr. helped produce the film. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

    Jaime Foxx is quite exquisite in this film, one could say, he was born to play the part. No easy feat for the most talented man in Hollywood, however he does the Ray Charles all the justice, best biopic ever made. All across the board the story the acting the detail its totally complete this movie, should have one best picture, but hollywood so white doe.

    So overall I highly recommend "Ray" on Blu-ray! Jamie Foxx yet has an amazing performance where you can see how he became a great actor. The only flaw with this movie is the Digital Copy. The Digital Copy only works for Itunes and it will not transfer over to Vudu, Flixster, etc. Other than that the movie is a must own film!

    Jamie Foxx's portrayal of Ray Charles is so spot on you almost feel like you're watching actual footage of Ray and not a biography film about his life. It's no wonder Jamie Foxx won an Oscar for his role. This film really reveals alot Ray Charles' life, ups and downs, that you may or may not have known! Powerful film!!!

    I didn't realize this movie was 12 years old already, nor did I remember seeing it until I bought it. Jamie Foxx is perfect in this film, as he usually is in my opinion. It's almost scary how good he portrays Ray, so this is a must-see for any Ray Charles fan. 10/10 in my book!

    I wasn't sure about this movie because I thought it would be hard to accurately portray Ray Charles life on the screen. Jamie Foxx did an excellent job with this role. You could have almost believed that it was actually Ray. This is what made this movie great for me

    I thoroughly enjoyed watching Ray (Blu-ray Disc). I found the acting of Jamie Foxx to be remarkable, oftentimes thinking i was watching Ray Charles, himself. Ray Charles life is a fascinating one. I highly recommend this movie.

    Ray is a wonderful drama about the life of Ray Charles. It's a period piece, which I always love, and the fact that it's based off a real story is inspiring. Very well done and one of my favorites
