In this tale of sex, violence, race and rock and roll in 1950's Chicago, CADILLAC RECORDS follows the exciting but turbulent lives of some of America's musical legends, including Muddy Waters, Leonard Chess, Little Walter and Howlin’ Wolf, Etta James and Chuck Berry.
2008: Nominated for Golden Globe: Best Original Song
Critics' reviews
  • "An account of the Chess story that depends more on music than history, which is perhaps as it should be. The film is a fascinating record of the evolution of a black musical style, and the tangled motives of the white men who had an instinct for it. (...) Rating: ★★★ (out of four)."
  • "A rollicking and insightful celebration of Chicago blues in its hectic golden age (...) would be worth seeing for the music alone. (...) Like those big, boxy Caddies, it’s built for comfort, not for speed. It hums, it purrs and it roars."
