National Post (Latest Edition) - - POST MOVIES - Chris Knight, Na­tional Post

Usu­ally i t’s the hor­ror movies that aren’t screened for crit­ics. But on this Fri­day the 13th, the time-loop/slasher flick Happy Death Day was shown in ad­vance, while the le­gal biopic Marshall ar­rives sight un­seen, at least in Canada. The movie stars Chad­wick Bose­man, who’s mak­ing some­thing of a ca­reer out of play­ing real-life African-Amer­i­can fig­ures. Marshall tells the story of Thur­good Marshall, who served on the U. S. Supreme Court from 1967 to 1991 as that body’s first black jus­tice. The cast also in­cludes Josh Gad, Dan Stevens, James Cromwell and Ster­ling K. Brown as a black man ac­cused of the rape and mur­der of a white so­ci­ety wo­man ( Kate Hud­son); Marshall’s de­fence of him in 1941 forms the back­bone of the movie. Marshall opens across Canada Oct. 13.
