There's no doubt: Don Cheadle and Chiwetel Ejiofor are two of the most dynamic actors around. In their hands, Talk to Me becomes as graceful as an Astaire-Rogers dance and as volcanic as heavyweight championship bout. In this true story set in the 1960s, Dewey Hughes (Ejiofor, Dirty Pretty Things, Inside Man) works for a Washington, D.C., radio station that's losing its hold on its urban audience. When ex-con "Petey" Green (Cheadle, Hotel Rwanda, Crash) blusters his way into the station's offices, Hughes rejects him at first, but soon suspects that this fiery loudmouth might be the spark the station needs. Thus begins a long, rocky relationship between two men who need each other for success and friendship, whose mutual career turns explosive on the set of The Tonight Show. Though directed with smooth confidence by Kasi Lemmons (Eve's Bayou), Talk to Me would be a fairly conventional biography were it not for its two lead performers. Cheadle and Ejiofor make both of these men complex and contradictory, wary and deeply caring, proud and aggressive but often self-defeating. They bring this slice of history--Green's career is deeply intertwined with the civil-rights movement--to crackling life. Giving them solid support are Martin Sheen (The West Wing), Cedric the Entertainer (Barbershop), and Taraji P. Henson (Hustle & Flow) as Green's sexy and assertive girlfriend, Vernell. --Bret Fetzer
