    Synopsis


    Sparkle
    A talented young woman is torn between her dreams and her family in this musical. Sparkle (Jordin Sparks) has been blessed with a beautiful voice and a gift for songwriting, but she's afraid to perform her songs in public, in part because her mother Emma (Whitney Houston), a former entertainer whose career brought her nothing but heartache, refuses to allow her daughters to sing outside of church. But Sparkle persuades her older sibling Sister (Carmen Ejogo) to sing one of her tunes at a talent show, and the reaction proves that Sister has star quality and Sparkle can write potential hits. An ambitious would-be manager, Stix (Derek Luke), persuades Sparkle and Sister to form a singing group with their sibling Dolores (Tika Sumpter), but while the act clicks wit audiences, the sisters have to contend with their angry mother, Sister gets caught up in a destructive relationship with a short-tempered comedian (Mike Epps), and Sparkle finds herself falling in love with Stix. Based on the 1976 musical of the same name, Sparkle proved to be the last major project for Whitney Houston, who died while the film was in post-production; it was also the first feature film for American Idol champion Sparks. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      I didn't think I would enjoy the new Sparkle as much as I did the old one. I was totally incorrect, the new Sparkle was very different from the old one. The actors and actresses performance were phenomenal. I'm glad it wasn't as sad as the old one and Sister didn't die in the new one. A very enjoyable movie!

      Do not wast your money. While some of the costumes were fun, overall the plot lacked any continuity and the songs were terrible. Whitney Houston was barely in the movie and she appeared to be having issues in her scenes. Overall it was a huge disappointment

      Carmen really gives you something you can feel in this movie. Sista girl had it going the heck on. The film was great and seeing Houston only made it better. It is a type of music that we need to hear more often rather than less.

      The blue ray came with a digital download which was an added value since I got it for under ten dollars. I wish the movie had lasted longer and Whitney was in more scenes. All in all I would purchase again.

      Very good plot would have loved to see more of Mike Eps character. He seem similar to Ike Turners character in what love has to do with it. The new actress who played Sparkles older sister did a great job.

      I really was moved by the last performance of Ms. Whitney Houston. The overall movie was great. I enjoyed it as much as I the original movie and soundtrack in the 70s.

      this is definitely a good remake and was only 8 dollars for bluray. Any Whitney Houston fan or Jordan Sparks fan should add this to their collection
