    I would have to say Dreamgirls.

    The first movie I thought of when it came to betrayal was The Godfather Part II (probably because of the Master Moments post), but Reservoir Dogs and Goodfellas are both great choices. Platoon would be my number two choice and as an honorable mention there’s Oliver Stone’s next movie a year later, Wall Street, which even though I think Wall Street is very flawed it still handles the betrayal element very well.
