4 thoughts on “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (2020)

  1. I will be watching tomorrow as it’s my day off. I’ve had this in my sights since I found out about it.

  2. I loved the costumes/makeup/hair in this, particularly the entire representation of Ma Rainey – Viola Davis pulled a Gary Oldman and just disappeared into this character. I loved reading about the wigs, one of the first things I noticed was how great they looked. I also loved that she wore a pair of Re-mix shoes with her day outfit.

  3. The research all the departments did is so evident on screen. I love that everyone really thought through all aspects of the look, and it looks so good! Historically accurate and thoughtful can be beautiful! (Take note, all those designers who want “modern” and “updated”)
