Marshall is based on the incredible true story of future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and one of the landmark cases of his life. It follows the young lawyer (Chadwick Boseman) to conservative Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur (Sterling K. Brown) charged with sexual assault and attempted murder of his white socialite employer (Kate Hudson). Muzzled by a segregationist court, Marshall partners with a courageous young Jewish lawyer (Josh Gad) and together they mount the defense in an environment of racism and anti-Semitism.
. Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American Supreme Court Justice, battles through one of his career-defining cases.
I really enjoyed this and consider it a must watch. Yep, rent it but be sober.
A truly incredible story of friendship forming in a trying fight against adversity. Very well done film.
Good concept but the screenplay needed more refinement. Acting was mostly convincing.
This film gives light to a world that’s dim in all shades. It was moving a inspiring then and is moving and inspiring now.
Local theaters in my area chose not to show this movie but I found one a distance a way that thankfully showed Marshall. I loved the story. The director decided not just to talk about Thurgood’s life but show one of his lesser known court cases. I was shocked to know that this happened near my hometown in NY.
Full of exaggeration and lies.
This could be characterized as a smear to his great works. What an insult to this great mans legacy
Is it a good movie? yes. Is it a great movie? maybe. Depends on perspective. We are in an age where everyone seems to be looking for a hero or two to guide them. Justice Marshal was the right man at the right time. How he achieved the things he did is history, how he got there is interesting but only of some importance! So sit back and enjoy a very good story.
This is a story about America during its worst moments, and the journey of a legend who fought against this nation's crimes. Regardless of how you recognize his accomplishments, just recognize them, and watch this film with the understanding that he sought change and equality!
