“Rustin” had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival, where it received strong reviews for Colman Domingo’s captivating, charismatic, and empathetic performance as civil rights activist Bayard Rustin. The film has already been praised along the film festival circuit and will be honored with the Icon & Creator Tribute for Social Justice at the 2023 Gotham Awards. Domingo and co-screenwriter Julian Breece were kind enough to spend a few minutes speaking with Dan Bayer and me about their work on the film, which is up for your consideration at this year’s Academy Awards in all eligible categories, including Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay. Please be sure to check out the film currently streaming on Netflix; take a listen below and enjoy! Thank you.
