About the Movie

Academy Award® nominee Don Cheadle portrays the one and only Ralph Waldo "Petey" Greene Jr. in this funny, feel-good and inspiring true story. Ex-convict Greene talks his way into an on-air radio gig with program director Dewey Hughes (Chiwetel Ejiofor), and his unprecedented "tell it like it is" style breaks all the rules while electrifying a city and bringing a nation together when it needs it the most. Also starring Cedric The Entertainer, Taraji P. Henson, Mike Epps and Martin Sheen, Talk to Me tells the extraordinary story of an outrageous and beloved voice ready to shake up the world in the movie critics are hailing as "fresh and revelatory" (Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times).

Fresh: The movie's occasional narrative shortcomings are offset by the performances, which are uniformly fine. – Bruce Newman, San Jose Mercury News, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Lemmons, her extraordinary cast and gifted crew deliver laughing, crying and plenty of signifying. – Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, Jun 24, 2010

Don Cheadle FTW!

This movie truly suprised me, the preview dosent really do it justice. A must watch for anybody who likes true stories. Don Cheadle proves once again that he is a top-tier actor.
