Roman J. Israel, Esq.
First screened in November 2017
Director: Dan Gilroy. Cast: Denzel Washington, Colin Farrell, Carmen Ejogo, DeRon Horton, Amari Cheatom, Lynda Gravatt, Tony Plana, Amanda Warren, Sam Gilroy, Hugo Armstrong. Screenplay: Dan Gilroy.

Twitter Capsule: Jamie Foxx's Soloist character plays Michael Clayton. Grandiloquent, semi-shapeless, but it weirdly compels.

VOR:   Not everything works, but the movie explores interesting ideas about activism, ethics, insanity, moral purity, and personal and public corruption. Unusual.
