The trailer for the Netflix's film version of August Wilson's "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom", starring Oscar winner Viola Davis and the late Chadwick Boseman is on YouTube. This film will most definitely be covered in Oscar nominations, Viola's transformation is amazing, and I also believe that Mr. Boseman will get a posthumous nom as well. The film will open in movie theatres in November and premiere on Netflix a week before Christmas.
This looks incredible.
I know absolutely nothing about this, so apologies if this is a stupid question, but - is that Viola singing or is she miming?

I am not always excited for movie adaptations but boyohboy does this one look great. I thought Denzel's Fences a few years back was about as good as adaptation gets, and this looks like it's going to be just as good.
