About Respect

The film delves into Franklin’s childhood and how her upbringing in the church shaped her love of music. While growing up in Detroit, she was able to befriend and work with some of the groundbreaking voices of the Motown sound, including Smokey Robinson and many others. At the same time, with her ties to her father’s church, she became close to gospel music and Christian figures of the time, including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Respect is a deeply moving narrative of the life of Aretha Franklin and weaves through her life and the civil rights life of America in the 1950s and 60s.

Producers of the movie are promoting a worldwide watch party in conjunction with the digital release of the movie on Friday evening at 7 pm ET.

The initial release of Respect was delayed from August 14, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, the motion picture was released in theaters on August 12, 2021, before its digital release on August 27, 2021.
