Den­zel Wash­ing­ton was in Academy Award-nom­i­nated form to play Ru­bin “The Hur­ri­cane” Carter, the boxer wrongly con­victed and im­pris­oned for mur­der in 1966. His in­no­cence, cham­pi­oned no­tably in Bob Dy­lan’s 1975 song Hur­ri­cane, even­tu­ally was proven, but not be­fore he had spent 19 years be­hind bars. This is one of Wash­ing­ton’s most pow­er­ful per­for­mances.
