Denzel Washington overpowers 'Roman J. Israel, Esq.'

Writer/director Dan Gilroy had Oscar-winning actor Denzel Washington in mind when he was creating the script for "Roman J. Israel, Esq." His instincts were right. Washington buries himself deep in the role of a savant lawyer who finds himself at a major junction in his life when his mentor dies. As Washington has done in every role he plays, it's not just enough to act out the words on the script but he embodies the character to the nexus of total transformation.
