Highlights From The Mountaintop Starring Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett

With original music by Grammy winner Branford Marsalis, The Mountaintop stars Samuel L. Jackson as civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Angela Bassett as Camae, a Lorraine Motel chambermaid who pays Dr. King a visit the evening before he is assassinated. Tony Award nominee Kenny Leon (Fences, Stick Fly) directs Katori Hall's Olivier Award-winning play, a fact-inspired work of fiction intent on showing the human side of the iconic activist.
