|Get ready to be rocked to your soul by The Five Heartbeats! Robert Townsend directs and stars in this Motown-filled story of five young friends whose dream of success takes them from amateur nights in ghetto clubs to the pinnacle of show business success and personal tragedy.|
"A stunning and exhuberant motion picture. Terrific acting and unforgettable music. Jim Whaley, PBS
"Townsend shows a real talent...to go for the human truth in his characters. Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
Editor's NoteActor-director Robert Townsend came to fame depicting the pitfalls of the Hollywood experience for black actors with his 1987 film HOLLYWOOD SHUFFLE. Four years later, he took on the mid-'60s music scene with THE FIVE HEARTBEATS. After doing extensive research with long-lived pop/R&B group the Dells, he painted a cinematic scene of five young friends in the 60s who share the dream of making music. They journey together through three decades, experiencing all the ups and downs show business had to offer, intensified by the difficulties faces by black acts in the era of civil-rights protest. Interacting as everything from a close-knit musical family to occasional bitter rivals, the fictional Five Heartbeats experience both success and tragedy in this excellent film. The multi-talented Townshend functions as both director and star, alongside compelling performances by a cast that includes Leon and Diahann Caroll. Featuring a mix of original songs and classic Motown material, THE FIVE HEARTBEATS is an irresistible combination of music and drama that captures a unique period in American cultural history.
