This week on the BIG show, we salute the 25th Anniversary of the cult-classic musical drama, The Five Heartbeats. Released in March 1991, writer/director Robert Townsend's musical love letter tells the story of a quintet of hopeful young African American men in the 1960s who form an amateur vocal group called The Five Heartbeats. We'll talk about the film's impact and spotlight the music from this classic. Plus, we'll have entertainment news and reviews of the latest films, including Midnight Special, all on Episode 284 of Keeping It Reel with FilmGordon.
