Reviews
Mine: Excellent performance by the entire cast make a good, if some what talky, movie. It does show it's roots as a play. Boseman and his character are at the center and he is terrific.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Chicago, 1927. A recording session. Tensions rise between Ma Rainey, her ambitious horn player and the white management determined to control the uncontrollable "Mother of the Blues".
