Rating: 3.0/5.0

This is the story of Jesse Brown (Jonathan Majors) and Tom Hudner (Glen Powell), a black and white wingman team during the early integrated Navy pilot days during the early Korean War conflict. Jesse Brown was a pioneer as a Top Gun for the Navy in the days when African Americans were given few opportunities to fly planes for the U.S. military. Hudner becomes his colleague and friend, while Brown’s wife Daisy (Christina Jackson) keeps up the home front in a new and not-so-welcoming neighborhood. When the a war mission beckons and duty calls, the two mavericky pilots will watch each other’s backs.

”Devotion” opens in theaters on November 23rd. Featuring Jonathan Majors, Glen Powell, Thomas Sadoski, Christina Jackson and Serinda Swan. Screenplay adapted by Jake Crane and Jonathan Stewart. Directed by J.D. Dillard. Rated “PG-13”
