The Banker


In the early 1960s, Bernard Garrett (Anthony Mackie) goes into business with Joe Morris (Samuel L. Jackson); theyā€™re very successfulā€¦ but it all depends on white people not knowing the color of their skin. A reality-based story about a brilliant man who used a white front to manipulate a thoroughly rotten system. That touch of bravery makes it entertaining, along with the lead performances. Jackson and Nicholas Hoult are terrific as the cocky club owner and the ignorant front who has to learn how to come across as a savvy businessman. Lighthearted at times, but the ever-present racism provides darkness.

2020-U.S. 120 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ George Nolfi. Cast: Samuel L. Jackson (Joe Morris), Anthony Mackie (Bernard Garrett), Nicholas Hoult (Matt Steiner), Nia Long, Scott Daniel Johnson, Taylor Blackā€¦ Colm Meaney.

Trivia: Co-produced by Mackie.Ā
