What is very interesting with this particular film, Sparkle, is its storyline. The film follows the life-story of the musical prodigy named Sparkle who dreams of becoming a superstar. Within the film, Sparkle does whatever she can to make her dream become a reality. But, of course, every day life is no easy road. Sparkle will encounter many challenges in everyday life just like the issues that are tearing her family apart, her romantic involvements, and much more of life's bumps and turns. The major conflict in her own life is keeping the balance between her dream, her relationship together with her mother and her romantic affluences with a music manager named Stix. The good thing is that, Sparkle isn't the type of girl who lets the challenges ruin her. She's the kind of girl who fights the difficulties and does things her way. With this, within the movie, she, and her two sisters, Sister and Dolores, are able to create a dynamic singing group during the Motown-era.
