Devil in a Blue Dress

(1995) dir Carl Franklin w/Denzel Washington, Tom Sizemore, Jennifer Beals, Don Cheadle [102 min; 35mm]
Carl Franklin’s excellent adaptation of African-American neo-noir author Walter Mosley’s debut novel, DEVIL IN A BLUE DRESS features a magnetic performance by Golden Globes 2016 honoree Denzel Washington as private investigator Easy Rawlins. For his first case, Rawlins is hired by a man (Sizemore) to track down a missing woman (Beals) though his motives are shady. Drawn into a web of murder and political intrigue, Rawlins uses his charm and intelligence – and a trigger-happy childhood friend (Cheadle) – to try and untangle himself.

“The role of Easy looks as tailor-made for Mr. Washington as his suit, and it shows off the full effect of this actor’s movie-star dazzle.” – Janet Maslin, New York Times

★★★★ “Simmers with pungent suspense, humor and eroticism.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Dear Brattle Friends,

You guys continue to humble and amaze us with your outpouring of support!

Thanks to you, we have now raised more than $35,000 from over 400 individual donors!

Thank you for helping to keep our staff paid and The Brattle alive during this scary time.

I hope that you are all feeling healthy.

As we remain closed, our preliminary goal is to raise four weeks of operating support, or $65,000, to ensure we can continue to pay all of our staff, and other overhead through April 7. As things develop, our timeline for being closed and fundraising goal may change, but our ultimate goal of re-opening The Brattle stays firm.

With your help, this goal will become a reality.

Stay healthy,

Ivy, Ned & The Brattle Theatre Team
