What's Love Got to Do with It

The story of Anna Mae Bullock and her inauspicious upbringing in rural Tennessee where she hones her musical ability beginning with the church before being discovered by Ike Turner, changing her name, and enduring years of domestic abuse while becoming one of the biggest musical headliners in the world. What's Love Got to Do with It is a fawning biopic of Tina Turner with not much to it besides the highly charged musical numbers and it odious scenes of spousal mistreatment and is recommended for the outstanding performances of Angela Bassett and Laurence Fishburne.
