Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance with Somebody

THE FILM is a celebration of the life and music of the late singer Whitney Houston. The biopic follows her journey from obscurity to musical superstardom. Directed by Kasi Lemmons, the film stars Naomi Ackie, Stanley Tucci, and Ashton Sanders. Vanity Fair’s Richard Lawson writes, “I Wanna Dance with Somebody is a mighty testament to Houston’s catalog, the cathedral highs and sultry lows of her singular voice. Those songs, at least, are eternal. If a movie that simply presses play on the mix tape is what it takes to remind us of Houston’s special power, then that’s reason enough for the film to exist. But the story behind the songs probably deserves more, and better.” Film reviews aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes’ Tomatometer gives it a score of 44%, and an audience score of 92%.
