Jamie fox plays the role of ray Charles. In a trailer of the movie we can see the director, Hackford saying that ray Charles approved of Jamie fox to play his role after playing piano alongside each other for two hours. On his part Jamie fox plays that role perfectly and ends up winning an academy award for best actor.
The movie shows us how determination and hard work can change a person’s class (economic status). Ray Charles was born in a poor family but by the time of his death he had amassed enough wealth to be able to give each of his 12 children a check of one million dollars. The movie does not show us many details to analyze on the basis of gender but the role of women in society is reflected.
