Product Overview

Producer John Singleton and award-winning director Craig Brewer bring to life the unforgettable tale of DJay (Terrence Howard), a pimp whose gritty hustle selling sexy Nola (Taryn Manning) and supporting pregnant Shug (Taraji Henson) leaves him wondering if this is it for him. Only when he trades contraband for a keyboard and bumps into his old school friend Key (Anthony Anderson) does he see a way out by laying down some tracks and fulfilling his dream of becoming a respected rapper. When he learns Skinny Black (Ludacris), a local rapper turned mogul, is rolling through town for the 4th of July, DJay plans for the hustle of his life to get his voice heard. Winner of the Audience Award at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival, Hustle & Flow is an intense and brilliant portrayal of one man's struggle for redemption and inspiration on life's mean streets.

ReviewSource ReelViews
Review "Hustle & Flow takes a cliche and imbues it with new life through the virtues of directorial flair and talented acting. For most of its running time, Hustle & Flow follows familiar patterns, deviating only during a third act that brings the street's grit into what initially appears to be a happily-ever-after fairy tale...Every time Hustle & Flow appears to be drifting too deeply into feel-good territory, the director reels it back in by employing a sudden act of violence (or something similar) to act as a splash of cold water. Winning the Audience Award for Best Dramatic Feature at the Sundance Film Festival is rarely a mark of distinction. But don't let that dissuade you - Hustle & Flow is worth a look. It celebrates art, hope, and dreams, and you don't have to like hip-hop to appreciate the message or the way in which it is delivered."

Review "Sometimes you never really see an actor until the right roles bring him into focus. Terrence Howard has made 22 movies and a lot of TV (most notably the series ""Sparks""), but now in ""Crash"" and ""Hustle & Flow,"" he creates such clearly-seen characters in such different worlds that his range and depth becomes unmistakable...""Hustle & Flow"" is not limited to Djay's rags-to-riches dream, because it is not a formula film. Much more interesting are his day-to-day relationships. Nola (Taryn Manning), the white woman who gets the benefit of his theory of human life, is his most profitable hooker, even though she tells Djay how much she hates getting into the cars of strange men...""Hustle & Flow"" shows, among other things, what a shallow music-video approach many films take to the inner city, and then what complexities and gifts bloom there. Every good actor has a season when he comes into his own, and this is Terrence Howard's time."
