As Academy Award-winning actor Denzel Washington gears up for the release of his next film, “Roman J. Israel, Esq.,” he’s calling on the next generation to be unashamed of their faith and convictions in this day and age of social media.
“I would say to your generation — find a way to work together because this is a very divisive, angry time you’re living in, unfortunately, because we didn’t grow up like that,” the 62-year-old told this Christian Post reporter at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles Saturday.
In his new film, “Roman J. Israel, Esq.,” Washington plays a lawyer named Roman J. Israel who has been fighting the good fight while others take the credit. “He finds out some unsettling things about what the crusading law firm he worked for 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,” the film’s synopsis says.
