Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom ★★★½

“The more music you have in the world, the fuller it is” — Ma Rainey

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom is a 2020 drama film directed by George C Wolfe starring Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman along with a few others. Tensions rise between Ma Rainey, her ambitious horn player and the white management determined to control the uncontrollable “Mother of the Blues”

Look, I don't wanna be that guy who calls an actor and/or actress last performances as their best — but with Chadwick Boseman, there's no denying it.

Final Verdict | B
