Plot
"Dreamgirls" begins sometime in the late 1950's to early 1960's in Detroit. We see three young African American girls set to try out for a talent show. Their performance led by Effie (Jennifer Hudson), wins them a gig with James Early (Eddie Murphy). At first the girls are happy to be back up singers, but gradually they get restless for stardom. Their manager (Jamie Fox) gradually guides them to success by appealing to a crossover, white, audience. In the process, Effie, gets replaced as the groups lead singer by the more photogenic, but generic voiced Beyonce. The movie follows the "Dreams" rise to the top, along with several tragedies. All this is set agains the backdrop of the volatile 60's.
