The plot for “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” is as follows:
Roman J. Israel is an idealistic, introverted attorney who has worked for years behind the scenes. But when his circumstances suddenly change, he lands at a cutthroat firm, working for a ruthless attorney and discovers a case that tests his mettle.
So what do you think? The film was met with a mixed to negative response at TIFF but there are some who feel that Denzel can still sneak into a weak Best Actor race. Tell us your thoughts though in the comments section below.
“Roman J. Israel, Esq” will open up November 3rd 2017.
