Film: Marshall

Opened: October 13, 2017

Directed by: Reginald Hudlin

Starring: Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, James Cromwell, Sterling K. Brown, Keesha Sharp, Sophia Bush & Jussie Smollett

Thurgood Marshall was a trailblazer for being the first African-American Supreme Court Justice, but even more interesting is how he rose to that level.

This film explores the younger Marshall (Chadwick Boseman) as he takes on a groundbreaking case where a black man (Sterling K. Brown) is accused of raping a white socialite (Kate Hudson).

Exploring some of the time’s biggest issues – race and religion – this film shows how people viewed and dealt with each other. James Cromwell plays the big bad judge who just seethes evil and you will literally sigh with disgust every time he comes on the screen.

Boseman is absolutely incredible and deserves some award recognition for his portrayal of Marshall. He makes you root for Marshall, even though you know how his journey ends.

Final say: An important story that shaped our history. ★★★★☆
