Wondering why times are missing?

Roman J. Israel, Esq.

Dan Gilroy follows up his lacerating debut Nightcrawler with this noble, but rather familiar legal drama. Denzel Washington stars as an idealistic (possibly autistic) social justice lawyer trying to keep alive the ideas of 1970s activism (not to mention '70s wardrobe). When his longtime partner suffers a heart attack, our titular protagonist is caught between going to work for a slick corporate law firm and sticking with his ideals. The film is more of a character study than a legal thriller, causing the story to come out in bits and pieces. 129 minutes PG-13.
