Talk To Me
Our next Rialto Recommends came and went from theatres in 2007 with too little recognition from audiences. TALK TO ME stars Don Cheadle as Petey Green a former convict who becomes an influential DJ in Washington DC and Chiwetel Ejiofor as the radio executive who discovered Petey. With strong supporting performances by Taraji P. Henson and Martin Sheen TALK TO ME is worth your time. Directed by Kasi Lemmon's Entertainment Weekly called TALK TO ME "A rowdy, richly offbeat biopic." While the Seattle P-I said "Hughes' push for Greene to succeed confronts the nettlesome issues of racial identity that most films vigorously avoid. The worthiness of Talk to Me will be proved if it gets us talking to each other." And the New York Times raved "The result is a movie that offers uplift without phoniness, history without undue didacticism and a fair number of funny, dirty jokes." TALK TO ME is streaming on Starz, Kanopy, and DirectTV or is available to rent for a modest fee from RedBox, Amazon, YouTube, GooglePlay, or Apple HERE.
