Chadwick Boseman takes on the role of legendary NAACP lawyer (and later, Supreme Court Justice) Thurgood Marshall in this story of an early case where he defended a black man on trial for raping a white woman. Forced by a racist system and intolerant judge to only act as an advisor for the case, he has to make the reluctant Josh Gad, a good insurance lawyer but one with no criminal trial experience, act as his mouthpiece. Featuring roles from Kate Hudson, James Cromwell, Dan Stevens, and Sterling K Brown, there’s a lot to like about this film that takes on such a pivotal trial about such a legend like Marshall, but, it still felt more like a TV film to Chris and Marco.
