Movie Review: "Get on Up"

The movie about James Brown's life, "Get on Up," was satisfying! The director (Tate Taylor) and main actor (Chadwick Boseman) captured the essence of the "Godfather of Soul" within the time constraints of a Hollywood movie. The film was entertaining, the story was fascinating, and the music was energizing! I couldn't help but wonder if James Brown would have become James Brown had it not been for his really sad childhood. His struggles reminded me of the metamorphosis that must take place for the caterpillar to become the butterfly. I think we shy away from struggles and let them handicap us, when in reality, they help us grow into the person we're destined to become.
