Justice has an unforgettable name in the rousing courtroom drama MARSHALL, available on DVD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on February 26 - and to celebrate, we're giving away three copies on DVD!
In the year 1941, the United States teeters on the brink of entering World War II. The country’s largest civil rights organization, the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) sends its only lawyer, thirty-two-year-old Thurgood Marshall (Boseman), to defend a black chauffeur (Brown) charged with rape and attempted murder by his socialite employer (Hudson).
The trial quickly dominated headlines and became tabloid fodder. Marshall, in need of a win, engages the help of Samuel Friedman (Gad), a young Jewish lawyer with no trial experience. Marshall and Friedman struggle to expose the truth amidst the fear and prejudice, knowing that a young man’s life hangs in the balance. The trial set the groundwork for a career that would make Thurgood Marshall America’s first African-American Supreme Court Justice. Marshall is based upon a true story.
Starring Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Josh Gad (Murder on the Orient Express, Beauty and the Beast), Oscar® nominee Kate Hudson (Best Supporting Actress, Almost Famous, 2000), Dan Stevens (The Man Who Invented Christmas, TV’s “Downton Abbey”) and two-time Emmy® winner Sterling K. Brown, Marshall has received an Academy Award® 2018 nomination for Best Original Song for Diane Warren and Lonnie R. Lynn’s “Stand Up for Something”
