Though it will be remembered as Chadwick Boseman’s final film, it should be instead remembered as the vehicle for his finest work, hands-down. Not only does he hold his own alongside the phenomenal Viola Davis, but Boseman also gives this film (chronicling a day-long 1930s recording session) the perfect amount of humanity, gravitas, and flat-out power. Don’t be surprised if both actors win Oscars in April. Phenomenal stuff.

5/5 stars
