What's Love Got to Do With It? [DVD] [1993]

Brian Gibson's biopic of Tina Turner, What's Love Got to Do with It?, comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. An English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, while a French soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Stereo. There are neither subtitles nor closed-captions on this release. Supplemental materials include a theatrical trailer. The film looks and sounds superb on this disc, but the best aspects of it are the commanding performances by Angela Bassett and Laurence Fishburne. They both earned Oscar nominations, and the small screen does nothing to diminish their amazing work.

Synopsis

What's Love Got to Do with It?
What's Love Got to Do With It? is the filmed biography of R&B/pop singer Tina Turner (Angela Bassett), documenting her efforts to break away from her abusive husband Ike (Laurence Fishburne). After a few scenes detailing Tina's life as a young singer in Nutbush, TN, she's discovered by Ike Turner, an already established songwriter, guitarist, and record producer. Ike takes Tina under his wing and makes her a star, but her fame makes him jealous and abusive, and she has to struggle to break free of his domination. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
