Denzel Washington is back and scheduled for another possible Oscar contender this December as Nightcrawler director Dan Gilroy puts the veteran actor front and centre once more, backed by the brilliant Colin Farrell in Roman J. Israel, Esq. With the film only a mere months away, the first trailer has been released.
Roman J. Israel, Esq. is a dramatic thriller set in the underbelly of the overburdened Los Angeles criminal court system. Denzel Washington stars as a driven, idealistic defense attorney whose life is upended when a turbulent series of events challenge the activism that has defined his career. Colin Farrell costars as the ambitious, monied lawyer who recruits Roman to his firm.
