First of all I love Jeffrey Wright! The man's an acting genius who deserves more roles. I gravitate to any movie that he stars in! Though this was an exciting story, it was heartbreaking to see that everything was lost.

||Chess records rule!|
wow, this was great. Acting best so far this year. Jeff Wright has been a sleeper since "Ride with the Devil".

Waited patiently for this release... only to find out it was not released in Canada (Toronto)??? So, we made the 2 hour drive to Buffalo, certainly worth the trek... Entertaining & informative, definitely one of the "great labels" in music history.

As a fiction, Cadillac Records has its moments but the Chess story as told by Ms Darnell Martin is absolutely inaccurate.
