Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

I have watched this movie once. This was on .


Chicago, 1927. A recording session. Tensions rise between Ma Rainey, her ambitious horn player and the white management determined to control the uncontrollable "Mother of the Blues". Based on Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson's play.

Everything Comes Out in the Blues.

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom


Great dialogue and a unique perspective, but two very unlikeable main characters.
