Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom ★★★

Much like August Wilson's previous big screen adaptation, Fences, this one is a terrific showcase for the actors, especially Viola Davis (definitely among the top 3 actresses working today), Glynn Turman (who's having a great year between this and Fargo), Colman Domingo and the late Chadwick Boseman. There is a monologue that he delivers which is just too good. I will miss his presence on screen, he was a great talent.
