Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom ★★★½

Viola Davis as Ma Rainey walks a fine line between annoying and empowering. On the one hand I was like "okay now she wants a coke" on the other hand I was like "yeah show those white dudes what you're worth". But as whole, a powerful performance that alongside Chadwick's, deserves a 5-star rating on its own.
