Devotion Review: Jonathan Majors Astounds in True Account of the Korean War

Jonathan Majors continues to astound in an emotional true story of service, sacrifice, and friendship. Devotion recounts the heroics of Jesse Brown, the first African-American pilot to complete the Navy's flight training, and Tom Hudner, his faithful colleague, during the Korean War. Based on the novel by Adam Makos, the film tackles the blatant bigotry and ignorance that Brown faced while shattering color barriers. He used every slight to fuel a fierce determination for success. Brown was a shining symbol of possibility for other black seamen relegated to subservient roles. He also embodied a threat to the status quo that whites were superior and blacks should accept their place. Tears will flow like rivers in this gripping, superbly acted film.
