Cadillac Records traces the growth of the Chess Records label. The star-studded cast includes Beyoncé Knowles (Etta James), Adrien Brody (Leonard Chess), Mos Def (Chuck Berry), Cedric the Entertainer (Willie Dixon), Eamonn Walker (Howlin' Wolf) and Jeffrey Wright (Muddy Waters). Leonard Chess drove his Cadillac across the South, signing artists and selling records out of his trunk. He built his Chicago-based label on blues and R&B acts and later on rock 'n' roll. — Will Coviello
