MKE Film Festival

John Boyega shows off his acting chops in this tense hostage crisis thriller. Based on a true story, Boyega portrays Marine war veteran Brian Brown-Easley as he demands what he is rightfully owed and turns the national eye toward the plight of American soldiers trying to reintegrate into civilian society. Winner of a Special Jury Award for an Ensemble Cast at Sundance, every performance is a stunner, including a final turn by the late, great Michael K. Williams.
