A NIGHT AT THE MOVIES
Something the Lord Made


This movie tells the story of the 34-year partnership that begins in Depression Era Nashville in 1930 when Blalock (Alan Rickman) hires Thomas (Mos Def) as an assistant in his Vanderbilt University lab, expecting him to perform janitorial work. But Thomasí remarkable manual dexterity and intellectual acumen confound Blalockís expectations and Thomas rapidly becomes indispensable as a research partner to Blalock in his forays into heart surgery. The film traces the two menís work when they move in 1941 from Vanderbilt to Johns Hopkins, an institution where the only black employees are janitors and where Thomas must enter by the back door.
