About Cadillac Records

In this tale of sex, violence, race and rock n' roll in 1950s Chicago, director Darnell Martin chronicles the rise of Chess Records, founded by Leonard Chess, and its slate of recording artists who left an indelible mark on popular music. The blues revival and its influence on the rock music explosion that takes over the world is viewed through the exciting but turbulent lives of America's musical legends, including Etta James, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf and Chuck Berry. Beyonce stars as Etta James.
