About the Film
Denzel Washington turns up the heat as a L.A. private eye in this steamy mystery from executive producers Jonathan Demme and Edward Saxon and director Carl Franklin. Washington stars as Ezekiel "Easy" Rawlins, a decorated war hero who returns home to the segregation of post-war America. Forced to accept an under-the-table job finding a missing socialite, Easy is caught between the white power elite and the vibrant black community of Central Avenue. And as soon as Easy and his trigger-happy friend Mouse (Don Cheadle, in a star-making performance) find the mysterious Daphne Monet (Jennifer Beals), trouble follows.
Devil in a Blue Dress
Denzel's portrayal as Easy Rawlings the war veteran turn private eye was compelling and had me glued to my seat.I would recommend this film to all fans of detective films, Easy Rawlings is up there with the great detectives of a bygone era. The film set in the late fifties /early sixties had it all, tension, racism, optimism and police harrassment of blacks. Easy was hired to find a missing young lady Daphne but it wasn't as easy as he thought when he got into trouble who was there to help him out, his old friend from down south Mouse played by Don Cheadle a very sterling proformance by Don. A must see film.
