Entertainment Weekly - 01/19/2007
"One of the best things to emerge from the film version of DREAMGIRLS is the release of an even better movie, 1976's SPARKLE..." -- Grade: A-

Product Description:

Irene Cara (of FLASHDANCE soundtrack fame) and Lonette McKee star in this dramatic story of a musical trio's rise to stardom. Three sisters, who are raised in an impoverished neighborhood, have dreams of become pop singers. After a dark period which includes entering several dinky talent shows, they are finally discovered, and enter a world of glamour and fame. Like many though, they soon learn that there is a dangerous side to success, and they must find ways to combat the threat of self-destruction. A score by the infamous Curtis Mayfield adds soul to the drama, and the three women's tour-de-force performances are riveting.

Plot Synopsis:

A rags to riches tale about an aspiring soul group loosely based on the Supremes. Three beautiful, young, female vocalists try to make it to the top of the charts. But they encounter heartbreak along the way...and only one will be able to achieve her dream.
