Ma Rainey's Black Bottom Collected

The actor, who died this year after a private battle with colon cancer, plays a trumpet player in his final performance

George C. Wolfe’s latest film Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom stars Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman as a young, ambitious trumpet player, who wants to make a name for himself. This will be the actor’s final performance.

Netflix has been promoting this musical drama as a serious awards season contender for a while now. The popular blues singer, Ma Rainey, is played by Oscar winning actor Viola Davis. The title of the film comes from Ma Rainey's song of the same name.

The upcoming Netflix feature, premiering on December 18, would explore the exploitation of black music artists by white producers – set against the backdrop of 1920s Chicago.

The cast also includes Glynn Turman, Colman Domingo, Michael Potts, Jonny Coyne, Taylour Paige, Jeremy Shamos, Dusan Brown, and Joshua Harto.

Chadwick Boseman died on August 28 after a private four-year battle with colon cancer at the age of 43.

Here’s the synopsis of his final film:

Tensions and temperatures rise over the course of an afternoon recording session in 1920s Chicago as a band of musicians await trailblazing performer, the legendary “Mother of the Blues,” Ma Rainey (Academy Award® winner Viola Davis). Late to the session, the fearless, fiery Ma engages in a battle of wills with her white manager and producer over control of her music.

As the band waits in the studio’s claustrophobic rehearsal room, ambitious trumpeter Levee (Chadwick Boseman) — who has an eye for Ma’s girlfriend and is determined to stake his own claim on the music industry — spurs his fellow musicians into an eruption of stories revealing truths that will forever change the course of their lives.
