WINNER of the Audience Award, 2018 Sundance Film Festival
A reverend (Forest Whitaker) tries to keep racial tensions from escalating when a Klu Klux Klan museum is opened in his South Carolina town in this Sundance Audience Award-winning true story drama.
"Mike Burden (Garrett Hedlund, Mudbound) is a taciturn repo man rising through the ranks of the Ku Klux Klan in small-town South Carolina, 1996. Orphaned as a child, he is fiercely loyal to local Klan leader and toxic father figure Tom Griffin (Oscar nominee Tom Wilkinson, Michael Clayton). But Burden has a change of heart when he falls for Judy (Andrea Riseborough, Birdman), a single mother who stirs his social conscience. His violent break from the Klan sends him into the open arms of Reverend Kennedy (Whitaker), an idealistic African American preacher, who offers him safety and a shot at redemption."
