Photos of "Talk to Me" at the opening of the festival

The Los Angeles Film Festival got rolling on Thursday night (June 21) with the premiere of Kasi Lemmons's Talk to Me, which stars Don Cheadle, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Martin Sheen, Taraji P. Henson, Cedric the Entertainer, and Mike Epps

The powerful real-life story of Ralph Waldo "Petey" Greene (portrayed by Academy Award nominee Don Cheadle), an outspoken ex-con who talked his way into becoming an iconic radio personality in the 1960s in Washington, D.C. Sparked by both the era's vibrant soul music and exploding social consciousness, Petey openly courted controversy at a white-owned station. Relying on his producer Dewey Hughes (double Golden Globe Award nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor) to run interference, Petey's unprecedented "tell it like it is" on-air style gave voice and spirit to the black community during and exciting and turbulent period in American history.
