Mo’ Better Blues + Short Film: Wash + Intro

Talented trumpeter Bleek Gilliam (Washington) is obsessed by his music and torn by indecisiveness about his girlfriends Indigo and Clarke. But when he is forced to come to the aid of his manager and childhood friend Giant (Lee), Bleek finds his world more fragile than he ever imagined. A feast for the senses, the film features a superlative score by Bill Lee (the director’s father) as performed by the Branford Marsalis Quartet.
