Enjoyable recreation of the rise and fall of Chess Records. Featuring all the famous names, that generally are well represented with Jeffrey Wright (Muddy Waters) being particularly memorable. There is so much to communicate from the dawning of rock n roll to the changing of racial beliefs. The script does a pretty good job condensing the history around the major players. Great music and plenty of classic Cadillacs, what more could you want?
