The movie event of the year didn’t happen in theaters, it happened in living rooms all across the world, courtesy of Netflix. “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” is a tour-de-force for all involved.

In what would be Chadwick Boseman’s final film performance, the actor cemented his legacy as one of the finest actors to grace the screen. His entire time on screen is electrifying but in one monologue, Chadwick cements what should be an easy Oscar win.

Viola Davis who plays the titular character shines as Ma Rainey. If there’s any justice, this role will garner Davis her second Oscar win, but this time as Lead Actress. Her physical transformation into Ma Rainey is amazing. She so fully embodies the character that you forget that she ever played any other role.

While the entire supporting cast is outstanding, I must also give a shoutout to Glenn Turman who plays Toledo, Ma’s pianist. He gives an Oscar worthy performance and should be on the Best Supporting Actor shortlist.

“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” is based on the play of the same name by August Wilson. It takes place over the course of an afternoon as Ma Rainey and her band are recording songs in a Chicago studio.

This movie is a must-see. You won’t be sorry.

Watch the trailer below.
