The Wiz

The Wiz
Adventure, Family, Fantasy | 1978 | G. 2hr 14min
CAST: Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Nipsey Russell, Lena Horne, Richard Pryor DIRECTOR: Sidney Lumet CLASSIC FILM SERIES

Dorothy, a young African-American kindergarten teacher leaves a large family dinner one night to chase after her dog during a New York City snowstorm and gets swept up by a cyclone and transplanted to the urban version of the land of Oz.

It's good that the Scarecrow is the first traveling companion she meets; Michael Jackson fills the role with humor and warmth.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
Sidney Lumet's spectacular, joyous production of The Wiz generates a mood of wonder and sentimental rapture recalling the arrival of the Mother Ship in Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
