About What's Love Got to Do with It

What's Love Got to Do with It, the 1993 biopic about the life of Tina Turner, is a powerful and emotional film that captures the highs and lows of the legendary singer's career. Starring Angela Bassett as Turner and Laurence Fishburne as her abusive husband and musical partner Ike Turner, the film is a raw and unflinching look at the toll that fame and abuse can take on a person.

Bassett's performance as Turner is nothing short of stunning, capturing both the singer's incredible talent and her fierce determination to overcome the obstacles in her path. Fishburne is equally impressive as Ike, portraying the musician's violent and controlling behavior with chilling authenticity.

Directed by Brian Gibson and written by Kate Lanier, What's Love Got to Do with It is a gripping and emotional film that has become a classic of the biopic genre. It was praised by critics for its powerful performances and its unflinching portrayal of domestic abuse, and it was a commercial success, grossing over $39 million at the box office.

Overall, What's Love Got to Do with It is a must-see film for fans of Tina Turner and anyone interested in the darker side of the music industry. It is a powerful and emotional tribute to one of the greatest singers of all time, and a reminder of the strength and resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity.
