Popcorn Culture - Review: Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

Based on August Wilson's play and produced by Denzel Washington, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom assembles a star-studded cast to bring one of the titular trailblazer's particularly tense recording sessions to life. On this episode, we discuss Viola Davis' portrayal as one of the most influential, yet underrated, blues singers in history, the timeliness of a film set in 1927, and the late Chadwick Boseman's final live-action performance.

Produced by: Arvindh Yuvaraj, Lee Chwi Lynn, Sharmilla Ganesan

Presented by: Arvindh Yuvaraj, Lee Chwi Lynn, Sharmilla Ganesan
