Before Jamie Foxx was shooting white people to save Kerry Washington in Django Unchained, he was shooting heroin in front of her as Ray Charles in the biopic Ray. The movie ends when Charles finally kicks his drug addiction, as poetically represented in a touching scene where the ghost of his mother makes him promise: "You'll never let nobody or nothing turn you into no cripple, ever again."
If only modern medicine recognized the therapeutic benefit of ghosts.
And then, even though he was a womanizing devil throughout the entire film, the renewed Charles is welcomed back into the open arms of his one true love, his wife, Della Robinson (Washington). In the last scene, the two kiss during an official "Ray Charles is awesome" ceremony in the '70s, surrounded by their three happy children.The Unpleasant Epilogue:
Absent from that scene: Charles' six to nine additional kids (apparently he lost count somewhere along the way) with up to eight other mothers. His complete inability to keep it in his pants eventually led Della to get fed up with all the cheating and procreating, and she took him to court in 1976. Charles didn't let a nasty divorce proceeding sour him on the joys of hooking up with ladies, so he did that again. And again, and again.
