Just saw it and have to say it was GREAT.

I highly recommend seeing this movie in the theatre for the best experience!

Seeing the movie in GA gave it all even more special meaning. At the end of the movie the entire theatre had to give a round of applause!

The movie came in at #2 for the weekend, but as this article mentions it will probably have a long life.

I saw it too. The show was sold out all weekend at the theatres in Wichita (thank God for prepay!!!). Not a dry eye in the house. When Jamie Foxx played Ray, you don't see Jamie, you see Ray. Fabolous!!! A note: The guy who played Ahmet Ertegun in the film is Curtis Armstrong, who played Dudley "Booger" Dawson in the Revenge of the Nerds films!!! Nice!

Jamie Foxx Wins Best Actor Oscar

quote:
LOS ANGELES - Jamie Foxx won the best-actor Academy Award on Sunday for the title role in "Ray," in which he delivered an uncanny emulation of beloved singer Ray Charles.

And now "Ray The Play":
"Ray" Goes Broadway

quote:
The producers of last year's critically hailed Ray Charles biopic, which garnered star
Jamie Foxx an Oscar, have Broadway on their mind.

Ray principals Stuart Benjamin and Howard and Karen Baldwin have secured the stage rights to Charles' life story and greatest hits from the late icon's estate and Ray Charles Enterprises for a musical production that's part biography, part revue.
