Academy Award winner Denzel Washington returns to the big screen as Roman J. Israel, Esq. in a film of the same name.

According to Deadline the film, “is a dramatic thriller set in the underbelly of the overburdened Los Angeles criminal court system. Washington plays 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 lawyer who eventually recruits Roman to his firm.”

Watch the trailer below.

Roman J. Israel, Esq. hits theaters this November.

And since it’s #ThrowbackThursday, remember this moment from Washington at the 48th NAACP Image Awards last year?
