Saw the movie couple of days before. Wunnerful knowing the life of an artist who surpasses all odds. Jammie Foxx does deserve the Oscar. The combination of Blues, Gospel & countryside music was lilting & terrific. Would love to listen to more music of this great guy who passed away in 2004. The story’s told in a very matter-of-fact way. No heroics involved and it just brought out the struggles, the weaknesses & the how-he-overcame-all life of a blind black musician.

Would like to see such movies being made in Tamil. Think ‘Iruvar’ successfully portrayed biographies in such a style.
