Films on DVD Series: Marshall

March 18 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Marshall movie

Marshall will be shown as part of the Films on DVD series. Starring Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, Sterling K. Brown, and James Cromwell, Marshall is based on an early trial in the career of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. It follows the young lawyer to conservative Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur. Muzzled by a segregationist court, Marshall partners with a courageous young Jewish lawyer, Samuel Friedman, to mount a defense in an environment of racism and Anti-Semitism. The high profile case and the partnership with Friedman served as a template for Marshall’s creation of the NAACP legal defense fund. Rated PG 13. The film is shown in collaboration with the Purdue Northwest Odyssey Arts and Cultural program.
