Film Review: Chadwick Boseman in ‘Marshall’

3 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If comic-book superheroes get origin stories, why shouldn’t Supreme Court justices? With its punchy, one-word title, “Marshall” sounds like it might be our introduction to some kind of pulp enforcer, but is in fact the story of ambitious young civil rights attorney Thurgood Marshall — who would go on to become the first African-American associate justice named to the highest court in the land — and one of his early cases, reminiscent of the one Atticus Finch tries in “To Kill a Mockinbird,” in which a terrified black chauffeur stands accused of the rape and attempted murder of his white employer.

How appropriate then that the title role should go to Chadwick Boseman, the handsome, fast-rising star who has played heroes both real (Jackie Robinson in “42”) and imaginary (Black Panther in the upcoming Marvel film), and who balances the two in this performance, offsetting Marshall’s mythic stature as the chief counsel for the NAACP with those qualities »

'Marshall': Film Review

3 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

It was a pre-racial-integration case like many others, a poor black man accused of assaulting and raping a wealthy white woman; one person's word against the other's, and guess who wins. But this one was a bit different in that one of the two attorneys for the defense was Thurgood Marshall, in the early 1940s working for the NAACP and two decades later to become the first black justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. Marshall is a solid, straightforward courtroom drama with proud liberal credentials, one that could have been made by Norman Jewison around 1967. But it »

Jimmy Kimmel Thanks Senators McCain, Collins for Potentially Thwarting Healthcare Bill

4 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel used his Monday-night monologue to suggest that the current Republican effort to repeal Obamacare was dead – and touted his role in the effort.

“I think I need to come clean,” Kimmel said during his monologue at a taping for Monday’s broadcast. “Here’s what happened.  So my wife and I were worried about health care. We didn’t like what the Republicans were doing… So we decided – to have a baby with congenital heart defects.  Ok?  And then – once we had that going for us – I went on TV, I spoke out – and we may have stopped Cassidy-Graham! I still can’t believe we pulled it off, but we did it!  It’s amazing, isn’t it? It’s really unbelievable.”

Kimmel has been speaking about the topic sporadically – once after his son, Billy, was born earlier this year, and again in recent days, as a new Republican effort to pass a »
