Movie Description:
Tensions and temperatures rise over the course of an afternoon recording session in 1920s Chicago as a band of musicians await trailblazing performer, the legendary "Mother of the Blues," Ma Rainey (Academy Award? winner Viola Davis). Late to the session, the fearless, fiery Ma engages in a battle of wills with her white manager and producer over control of her music. As the band waits in the studio's claustrophobic rehearsal room, ambitious trumpeter Levee (Chadwick Boseman) - who has an eye for Ma's girlfriend and is determined to stake his own claim on the music industry - spurs his fellow musicians into an eruption of stories revealing truths that will forever change the course of their lives. Adapted from two-time Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson's play, MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM celebrates the transformative power of the blues and the artists who refuse to let society's prejudices dictate their worth. Directed by George C. Wolfe and adapted for the screen by Ruben ...

Frustrated by the slow pace of the justice system, she takes matters into her own hands. Becoming NetCar driver herself, Trudy goes on a crusade to find and stop the serial rapist to whom she fell victim.



The opening scene depicts five characters over-talking each other at the rate of knots and talking nonsense to boot. The film is based on a play and - sadly - has the feel of a play. The story is dull. Snoozefest.

Very, very boring except for 'Ma'

Some guys arguing in a basement. And it goes on and on and on till you hit the forward button. It is more like a really boring 'educational' theaterplay aimed at 'white people'. Why not just make a movie? The scenes wirh Ma Rainey are quite wonderful, filled with tension and power. But those scenes are also too occupied with being a lament of afroamerican experience in the past. Actually the first scene of the movie made me look forward to seeing it. Ma Rainey in a steaming hot rural party tent. People waiting in long lines in the dark southern night to get in. That is 'movie'! Not the forlorn and uninteresting bickering between the band members. Don't tell it. Show it!

All soup water, no meat, potatoes, or carrots.

Great acting but no story; I was ready for the ending after thirty minutes-just a lot of mundane situations and conversations that are forgettable. I Will not repeat this movie.
