Roman J. Israel, Esq. is a new thriller set in the underbelly of the overburdened Los Angeles criminal court system.

A liberal lawyer named Roman J. Israel has been fighting the good fight while others take the credit. When his partner, the firm’s front man, has a heart attack, Israel suddenly takes on that role. He finds out some unsettling things about what the crusading law firm has done that run afoul of his values of helping the poor and dispossessed, and he finds himself in an existential crisis that leads to extreme action.

Written and directed by Dan Gilroy (Nightcrawler), Denzel Washington stars as a driven, idealistic defense attorney whose life is upended when a turbulent series of events challenge the activism that has defined his career. Colin Farrell co-stars as the ambitious, monied lawyer who recruits Roman to his firm.

This cast features also includes Carmen Ejogo, Lynda Gravatt, Amanda Warren, Hugo Armstrong, Sam Gilroy, Tony Plana, DeRon Horton and Amari Cheatom.

Roman J. Israel, Esq. is produced by Jennifer Fox, Todd Black, and Denzel Washington. The executive producers are Brian Oliver, Betsy Danbury, Charles D. King, Kim Roth, Poppy Hanks, Michael Bloom, Adam Pincus, Aaron L. Gilbert, Alex Lebovici, Steve Ponce, Derek Dauchy, and Ben Ross. The film is a Columbia Pictures presentation in association with MACRO / Topic / Cross Creek Pictures / Bron Studios / The Culture China – Image Nation Abu Dhabi Content Fund.

The film has its premiere tonight at the 42nd Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
