Storyline Heading
Roman J. Israel, Esq. is a dramatic thriller set in the underbelly of the overburdened Los Angeles criminal court system. He is a driven, idealistic defense attorney whose life is upended when a turbulent series of events challenge the activism that has defined his career.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This drama is a major showcase for star Denzel Washington, whose atypically quirky and eccentric character will be a surprise and delight to his fans. Colin Farrell has the most prominent supporting role. Some language and mild violence make the film not for kids, but then the film is largely targeted to older adults.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Poor ...the kind of horrendous hot mess an actor makes directly after he wins the Oscar. ...lifeless story... ...lifeless, interminable movie plays as if the filmmakers threw the footage up in the air and edited it in the order it hit the floor.

NY Post Full Review
Good There's a lot going on here, but Washington's complex, emotionally turbulent performance makes it all work. If you were expecting "Roman J. Israel, Esq.” to tackle relevant legal and social issues, stay home...What you'll get at the movie theater is a more grounded, moving and thoroughly engrossing "How To Get Away With Murder.”

Rolling Stone Full Review
Good ...Gilroy's movie is above standard-issue legal thriller but below the transcendent personal drama it aspires to be. No matter. The very fact that it aspires at all makes it a rare bird in paycheck Hollywood. Illuminated by Washington's humane artistry, Roman J. Israel, Esq. earns our respect.
