Movie: "Roman Israel, Esq." - Arts Council of Dickinson County Winter Film Festival

Sunday, March 17, 2019

"Roman J. Israel, Esq." is a legal thriller set in the overburdened Los Angeles criminal court system. Denzel Washington stars as a driven, idealistic defense attorney whose life is suddenly disrupted when his mentor, a civil rights icon, dies. When he is recruited to join a firm led by ambitious lawyer George Pierce (Colin Farrell) - and begins a friendship with a young champion for equal rights (Carmen Ejogo) - a turbulent series of events ensues, which will put the activism that has defined Roman’s career to the test. Admission to the movie is free and open to the public, sponsored by the Arts Council of Dickinson County. Patrons are asked to bring an item to contribute to the Abilene Area Food & Clothing Bank. Toiletry items such as tissues, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, and toilet paper are being requested.
