This film, starring Black Panther‘s Chadwick Boseman, follows the life of Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American Supreme Court Justice, as he battles through one of his career-defining cases. Traveling to conservative Connecticut to defend Joseph Spell, a black chauffer accused of sexual assault and attempted murder, Marshall soon teams up with Sam Friedman, a local Jewish lawyer who’s never handled a criminal case. Recounting this amazing story, Marshall is a must-see.
