The Hangman: Shepherds and Butchers

The Hangman: Shepherds and Butchers

Steve Coogan gives a powerful performance in this critically acclaimed courtroom drama inspired by true events. When a jaded lawyer (Coogan) takes on a 19-year-old Pretorian prison guard’s (Garion Dowds) seemingly hopeless murder case, South Africa’s capital punishment system is as much on trial as the defendant. Andrea Riseborough also stars in this beautifully filmed, thought-provoking drama.
  • Rated R for disturbing and violent content.
