Jamie Foxx, Tommy Lee Jones star in Amazon’s tepid ‘The Funeral’


Considering the cast, anyone looking forward to The Funeral , which starts streaming on Amazon Prime Video on Friday, can’t be blamed.

Two Academy Award winners – Jamie Foxx and Tommy Lee Jones – star in this drama from director Maggie Bates, who co-wrote the screenplay with Doug Wright and Jonathan Hare the play.

However, the film’s uneven tone dampens enthusiasm for the story of attorney Willie Gary and the case that catapulted him to legal stardom.

Based on a true story, Gary is the perfect role to let Fosse’s skills run free. He is arrogant, arrogant, aggressive, and very smart. He also doesn’t like failure.
