'The Banker' is a true story based on the true story of two black entrepreneurs Bernard Garrett (Mackie) and Joseph Morris (Jackson). The two used a white man, Matt Steiner (Nicholas Hoult) to pose as the head of their business empire to circumvent the racial limitations of the 1950s. Garrett and Morris posed as a janitor and chaffeur to monitor their business.⠀

Nia Long stars as Garrett’s wife, Eunice, who played an instrumental part in setting up their enterprise. The two become very wealthy real estate investors in California, who go on to purchase two banks in Texas, during the Jim Crow era deep south. Once they acquired the Mainland Back & Trust Co and a controlling interest in the First National Bank Of Marlin, the began to quietly provide loans to the African American community there. When the white banking establishment figured out what was happening, the men were placed at great personal risk.⠀

The Best Man

It's been a while since I watched this one, so I decided to revisit it this morning before work. The story is very entertaining, and the cast is great. Their chemistry is real, which made for a feel good flick.
