Chadwick Boseman Gets Oscar Buzz With The Review Of His Last Film Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom featuring co-star Viola Davis. First reactions to Netflix’s upcoming awards season juggernaut “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” are finally here. And they’re major, with showers of acclaim for Oscar shoo-ins Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman. Directed by George C. Wolfe and adapted from the beloved play by August Wilson, the drama debuted on Saturday, November 14 as part of a sneak-peek virtual premiere in partnership with the American Film Institute. “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” is set to launch on Netflix everywhere December 18.
In “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” tensions and temperatures escalate throughout the course of an afternoon recording session in 1920s Chicago. A band of musicians await the arrival of one trailblazing performer, the Mother of the Blues, Ma Rainey. She’s played by Viola Davis, the Oscar winner for Best Supporting Actress for another August Wilson adaptation, director Denzel Washington’s “Fences.” (Washington is also a producer on “Ma Rainey’s.”) Late to the session, Ma Rainey stirs up ado with her white manager and producer over the control of her music. Meanwhile, the band waits in a claustrophobic rehearsal room, where trumpeter Levee (Boseman), with ambitions of his own, spurs his fellow musicians into revealing truths that will change all their lives.

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom ★★★
When I initially heard #ChadwickBoseman's Oscar buzz for this August Wilson adaptation, I presumed it was just because this is his final movie & everyone is still grieving after his tragic passing. However, he genuinely gives a stellar performance. pic.twitter.com/BqEtkOzHlT

When Chadwick Boseman arrived in Pittsburgh to film “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” his castmates didn’t know he’d been privately battling cancer for years.
Now, after his passing, his costars remember him as he poured his all into his last screen performance https://t.co/8O8gaTn8js
