Sing Sing (2024, D: Kwedar) S: Domingo, Maclin -- A24




From director Greg Kwedar and starring Colman Domingo, Clarence Maclin, and Sean San José, and Paul Raci. SING SING – In Theaters July 2024. Debuted at TIFF last year with pretty good reviews - 93% Fresh RT.

Based on the real-life arts rehabilitation programme founded at Sing Sing Correctional Facility, Greg Kwedar’s new film follows a troupe of incarcerated actors who work on a play as part of a theatre workshop at the prison.Every six months, the men gather in a circle of chairs, often looking to Divine G (Colman Domingo) to help decide their next play. When he recruits a new member called Divine Eye, he gets more than he bargained for. The group’s dynamic begins to shift as Divine Eye suggests they do a comedy for the first time, prompting the men to throw out a jumble of wild ideas — from pirate ships to Roman gladiators to Old West gunfights. Flustered at first, Divine G quickly starts to see Divine Eye’s discomfort with the vulnerability required for what seems like a silly pursuit. While planning for his own clemency hearing, he tries to forge a connection with Eye, as the men collectively unpack the pain of their experience while undergoing the joy and escape of creativity.

Colman Domingo is just a force of nature and I'm happy for him that his career is taking off. Recently I watched an old episode of Law & Order with one eye, when I heard his voice. He was playing a lawyer and at that time he was already acting in front of the camera for about 10 years and he "only" got a three minute part in L&O. After that it took another 10 years before he landed Fear the Walking Dead.

He won't win the Oscar for Rustin, but I suppose he will be nominated more often in the years to come.
