Set in 1927 Chicago, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, based on the same-named play by August Wilson, follows an afternoon in the life with the title singer as clashes with her manager and producer over control of her music during a recording session. Meanwhile, Levee not only has an eye for Ma’s girlfriend, but is also keen on leaving his own stamp on the music industry. The cast also includes Glynn Turman, Colman Domingo, Michael Potts, Taylor Paige, Susan Brown, Jonny Coyle and Jeremy Shamos. George C. Wolfe directed the movie and Ruben Santiago-Hudson penned the screenplay.
