Overview

One man's struggle to rise above his circumstances prompts him to try a career in music in this acclaimed drama from writer and director Craig Brewer. Djay Terrence Howard is a low-level pimp and drug dealer who scraped together a living in the ghettos of Memphis, TN. Djay isn't happy with his life, and the realization that he's reached the same age when his father unexpectedly died has made him start thinking about changing his ways. Djay has always had a gift for spinning stories, and after picking up a cheap keyboard, he begins picking out beats to go along with his rhymes. After bumping into an old high-school buddy who works in gospel music, Key Anthony Anderson, Djay decided to take the plunge and remake himself as a rapper. With the technical know-how of Key and the musical input of a local beat maker named Shelby DJ Qualls, Djay begins turning his way with words and his first-hand knowledge of the street life into music, as his two live-in girlfriends, Lexus Paula Jai Parker and Shug Taraji P. Henson, add their musical input and emotional support and Nola Taryn Manning continues to turn tricks to pay the bills. When local boy-turned-nationwide hip-hop star Skinny Black Ludacris comes to town to pay a visit to Arnel Isaac Hayes, a club owner friendly with Djay, he sees an opportunity to put his demo in the hands of someone who can bring his music to the masses, though it turns out to be far more difficult than he expected. Hustle & Flow had its world premiere at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival, where it received a number of rave reviews and took home the Audience Award.

    2 unique stories in the cinema landscape

    Most people will remember Hustle & Flow from its Oscar winning soundtrack (You know it's hard out there for a pimp), but the film itself is a musical journey. From the continuous beat that drives Dee Jay to make his music, to the hard-hitting storytelling lyrics of his songs, to the pure awe-inspiring emotion of a gospel spiritual sung in a quiet church - this movie is music. Terrence Howard's remarkable performance as Dee Jay, a memphis pimp with a yearning to be a hip-hop musician, easily overshadowing any of his most recent film roles. Taraji P. Henson also gives an outstanding performance as Nola, Dee Jay's former trick who is now a pregnant mother - and eventual singer. Other performances by Taryn Manning, Elise Neal, Anthony Anderson, DJ Qualls, Issac Hayes and Ludacris are all solid, and fit well into this story of struggle for a dream despite circumstances. You'll be singing the songs from this film for days.
