Synopsis

When a young black girl is brutally raped by a two racist thugs in small-town Mississippi, her father is so enraged he takes the law into his own hands and murders them in plain view. This sets the stage for a hugely gritty, tense courtroom drama with some very controversial issues at its core. Matthew McConaughey leads a strong cast as the liberal young lawyer who takes on the seemingly hopeless defence of the father.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
