Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

“Brilliant... explosive! Dramatically riveting.”

—Newhouse Newspapers

It’s 1927 and Ma Rainey, also known as the "Mother of the Blues," is recording updated versions of some of her classic songs in a run-down studio in Chicago. Passionate and headstrong, Ma Rainey battles to maintain authority over her own music, even as her arrogant trumpet player, Levee, aspires to make a name for himself in the music industry.
