Devil in a Blue Dress

"Devil in a Blue Dress" Walter Mosley’s black Los Angeles private eye Ezekiel “Easy” Rawlins fits Denzel Washington like a glove in this stylish adaptation of Mosley’s best-seller. Easy always seems to get into trouble on the mean streets of City of Angels, circa late 1940s. And in this film noir, Easy stirs up a heap of mischief when he is asked to find a missing white woman (Jennifer Beals) who is supposedly hiding out in the black community. Don Cheadle steals the film as Easy’s trigger-happy pal Mouse.Firooz Zahedi / TriStar Pictures
