Born Anna Mae Bullock always had a special voice. Soon after arriving in St. Louis to live with the mother who had walked out when she was small, the now teenage Anna soon attracts the attention of pop group leader Ike Turner. She becomes the band's singer, his wife, and mother to his children - not all hers. In love with Ike and determined not to leave in the way her mother had, she finds herself the target of increasing violence from her unstable husband who can't see who is making the band such a success
Tina had many struggles in her like she was abused Ike and abandon by her mother and father so she was looking for love in Ike, she seen him as a leader who was controlling. Tina want to sing so badly the so put up with the abuse for many years.
The women in this film were used are sex objects to sell music. The clothes they wore help to draw men to the concerts the dance step were sexually exotic.
After Tina got tired of being abuse she looked to a spiritual power to help pull her from the abuse. She started to taking charge of her sing and fought back that when she started her new life. This was a positive start to a new life: stepping out on own her making a life without the man who was abusing her. Writing song for herself believing in herself
The best part of the movie was in the limousine when Ike hit her and she started to hit and kick him back I was clapping and yelling “YOU GO GIRL.”

Yes this is a positive film. Because she finally stop taking the abuse and stepped out on her own. It she that anyone who is being abused can take back their life and live.
