Staring: Viola Davis, Denzel Washington, George C. Wolfe
Streaming: Netflix
Release Date: December 18, 2020

A simple 30 min piece, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom: A Legacy Brought To Screen teaches the audience about the writing of August Wilson and how director George C. Wolfe brought the tale to screen.

Yes, I understand there was not a ton to explain here. Simple matter is that if you enjoyed Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (2020) then you’ll enjoy this doc.

  • Denzel Washington and Viola Davis have a good track record with this following Fences (2016).
  • I love the reasoning why Wolfe chose to put this play in the summer and not in the cold of winter as Wilson originally wrote.
