Apologies for the cancellation of this Saturday's Film Night - Marshall will now be shown in March.
Based on true events, a young Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American Supreme Court Justice, battles through one of his career-defining cases.
Starring Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, Sterling K. Brown, and James Cromwell. Director Reginald Hudlin's ‘Marshall’, is based on an early trial in the career of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. It follows the young lawyer (Chadwick Boseman) to conservative Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur (Sterling K. Brown) charged with sexual assault and attempted murder of his white socialite employer (Kate Hudson). Muzzled by a segregationist court, Marshall partners with a courageous young Jewish lawyer, Samuel Friedman (Josh Gad). Together they mount the defence in an environment of racism and Anti-Semitism.
