The Fighting Temptations

The Fighting Temptations Oscar winner Cuba Gooding, Jr. stars as Darrin Hill, a slick-talking but down-on-his-luck NYC advertising exec who returns to his hometown in Georgia to claim the inheritance his aunt left him. But before Darrin can collect the money, he must fulfill his aunt's final wish — to create a local choir and lead them on to win the annual ''Gospel Explosion'' competition.

Darrin soon finds out that his hometown is full of colourful characters but short on talented singers. Then he meets Lilly (Beyoncé Knowles), a beautiful jazz singer with a heavenly voice. Darrin sees Lilly as the answer to his prayers... if he can convince her his intentions are good and persuade her to sing.

Watch as Darrin tries to take this spiritual motley crew to victory and along the way realise that his aunt left him something much more than an inheritance.

Featuring performances by Shirley Caesar, The O'Jays and other music greats.
