Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom ★★★½

Its very obvious throughout this movie that its based on a stage play, and im not sure the filmmaking itself does enough to justify it being adapted into a film.... But, if an adaptation of a stage play is what it takes to get two absolutely incredible performances from Queen Viola Davis and late great Chadwick Boseman, then i won't complain too much.
