A Golden Globe and Oscar-nominated Denzel Washington stars as the titular Roman J Israel, a brilliant but reclusive and socially awkward LA civil rights lawyer who for decades has been fighting the good fight for his tiny, two-man firm. His comfortable, behind-the-scenes routine is suddenly upended when his long-time partner suffers a heart attack and falls into a coma, a situation that thrusts Roman into the orbit of slick attorney George Pierce (Colin Farrell) and sees his previously unshakeable moral compass take a sizeable hit. Compelling legal drama written and directed by Dan 'Nightcrawler' Gilroy, also featuring Carmen Ejogo.
