||Synopsis: It is 1948 in LA and Ezikeal Easy Rawlins, an African-American World War II veteran, is looking for work. At his friend's bar, he is introduced to a white man, DeWitt Albright, who is looking for someone to help him find a missing white woman assumed to be hiding somewhere in LA's Black community. This woman, Daphane Monet, happens to be the fiancée of a wealthy blue blood, Todd Carter, who is currently the favorite in the city's mayoralty race. Daphane Monet is known to frequent the Black jazz clubs in LA. Easy, innocently, accepts Albright's offer; however, he quickly finds himself amidst murder, crooked cops, ruthless politicians, and brutalizing hoodlums. This is a Chandler-esque who-done-it with an African-American theme. Written by Joel Schesser firstname.lastname@example.org

When Ezekiel `Easy' Rawlins loses his job he begins to worry how he'll make
ends meet when DeWitt Albright offers him cash to help find Daphne Monet,
the fiancée of politician Todd Carter. He takes the job as she is known to
like Afro-Americans and will be easier for him to find. He gets information
from a friend but is then framed for her murder. Stuck between the police
and Albright's men, Easy has to uncover why Monet is so important to so many
people and save himself from jail.
Franklin's greatest achievement here is the way he brings the period to
life, albeit with a certain amount of nostalgic love for the idea. The film
has a great jazz soundtrack and a real sense of place and atmosphere to it.
This supports the plot well and makes the film feel stronger and richer for
it. The plot is a solid mystery that sees Easy pulled into a wider plot
with the inevitable twists and turns. It is layered well without being too
complex or difficult to follow, but neither does it allow itself to become
too simplistic or easy. The film doesn't really play on racism or the race
of Easy but it does make race an equal influence (with money, power and
influence) on the plot and the characters.
Washington plays Easy well, reacting well to things and being a good
character. I don't know if it was ever planned that Easy would be a
character than would allow for further adaptations, but I know I would like
to have seen Washington take Easy further into his PI role. Sizemore is
good in support, as are Kinney, Carson, Beals and Chaykin. The strongest
support is given by Cheadle. His character may be extreme but he brings an
energy to the film that it benefits from (although it didn't need it). The
cast all ad to the rich feel of the plot and direction.
Overall this is a solidly enjoyable detective story with all the twists and
turns that you could expect from that genre. However it also benefits from
a great sense of place and time that is all though the film not merely
painted on with sets or soundtrack. A class act from Washington and others
just adds to the feeling of quality.
