Bessie (2015): Tease -HBO Films

Starring Queen Latifah, Tika Sumpter, Michael K. Williams, Mike Epps, Mo’Nique, and Khandi Alexander


Be sure to watch Bessie tonight on HBO! Great performances and a great film from writer/director Dee Rees (Pariah). They don’t shy away from showing the queer aspects of both Bessie Smith and Ma Rainey’s lives. Queen Latifah better win all the awards for her amazing performance. Mo’Nique is back and better than ever. Khandi Alexander will break your heart. Michael Kenneth Williams gets to showcase that intensity we all love and Mike Epps is a rock. It’s just a damn good movie.
