Synopsis
Roman J. Israel (Denzel Washington) is a brilliant, stubbornly dedicated lawyer who has spent his life doing pro bono work for little financial reward. When his legal partner dies and he ends up at a tonier law firm, Israel gets involved in a complicated murder case that offers him an opportunity to get rich if he compromises his ethics. Colin Farrell, Carmen Ejogo, Shelley Hennig, and Tony Plana co-star. Written and directed by Dan Gilroy (NIGHTCRAWLER).

Movie Critics
Empire
3 stars out of 5 -- "It’s absorbing enough in places and the plot takes respectable turns here and there..."
Simon Braund (29 Jan 2018, )
Los Angeles Times
"[T]he film is completely worth seeing just to experience such a totally realized performance and hear Gilroy's always sharp dialogue..."
Kenneth Turan (16 Nov 2017, )
Rolling Stone
3 stars out of 4 -- "There is no disputing the start-to-finish excellence of Denzel Washington in the title role. You may think you know Washington as an actor, but you've never seen him like this."
Peter Travers (14 Nov 2017, )
The Guardian
4 stars out of 5 -- "The zing in Washington’s Oscar-nominated performance is all in the physicality....It’s fascinating to watch Washington’s display of repressed turmoil."
Simran Hans (4 Feb 2018, )
Washington Post
"Denzel Washington delivers a performance for the ages in ROMAN J. ISRAEL, ESQ."
