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.
I saw Sparkle many years ago as a child and feel in love with the music and the movie. Just recently TVOne aired the show and I had an opportunity to watch the magic all over again. I had the original movie on VHS but it was destroyed years ago. I am thrilled to see that the DVD is being released. For anyone who knows anything about "girl" groups you must see this movie. You too will give it 5 starts. Lonette McKee was fantastic as Sister and Irene Cara was dynamic as Sparkle. Both women have beautiful voices!
This movie is a classic. Before there was a Dream girls there was Sparkle. I watched this movie when I was younger and still have the same excitment as an adult. The music is wonderful and the storyline is great too. Would not recommend for children due to some violence.
