Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017, D: Dan Gilroy) S: Denzel Washington, Colin Farrell





Roman J. Israel, Esq. is a dramatic thriller set in the underbelly of the overburdened Los Angeles criminal court system. Denzel Washington stars as a driven, idealistic defense attorney whose life is upended when a turbulent series of events challenge the activism that has defined his career. Colin Farrell costars as the ambitious, monied lawyer who recruits Roman to his firm.

Roman J. Israel, Esq. opens Nov. 3 in limited release, with expansion to follow on Nov. 10. The film opens wide on Nov. 17.

It was the trailer. It was only available via EW at the time. I didn't see any crazyiness from it, but I have updated with a YouTube version now that it is available.

Looks interesting. Liked Michael Clayton & Nightcrawler so I'll have to give this a chance.

I loved Nightcrawler and Washington is a great actor so I think this is something I might be interested in.

Opens this week. Denzel is apparently great, but pretty mixed reviews:

It was alright.

Colin Farrell was good as the douche lawyer.
