Ma Rainey's Black Bottom ★★★½

This is such an actors' showcase, and the hype is real about Chadwick Boseman's performance as Levee. When you add in solid work from Colman Domingo, Glynn Turman, and Viola Davis (in a fairly brief appearance for a Best Actress nod), there's a lot to like. It definitely feels like a play with long scenes in a few sets, but that gives the actors room to shine.
