Loosely based on the rise of Motown's "The Supremes", the Tony Award winning Dreamgirls follows the story of "The Dreamettes", a trio of women singers, featuring 'Effie' (Jennifer Hudson), 'Deena' (Beyonce Knowles) and 'Lorrell' (Anika Noni Rose).
At a talent competition, the group are discovered by manager 'Curtis Taylor Jr.' (Jamie Foxx), who offers the girls an opportunity to become back-up singers for headliner 'James Early', aka 'Thunder' (Eddie Murphy).
Curtis takes control of the group's look and sound, giving them a shot in the spotlight as "The Dreams".
But the cost of fame and fortune soon becomes a very high price to pay.
