It is 1967 and Detroit is burning. As racial tensions explode in the city, a group of white police officers descend on a motel, responding to reports of shots fired. By the time that night was over three innocent people were dead, and seven more had been terrorized and brutalized. This is their true story.
Director Kathryn Bigelow (THE HURT LOCKER, ZERO DARK THIRTY) returns to the big screen to deliver one of the most intense and vital films of 2017, DETROIT. Bigelow’s precise exploration of themes of power, race, and corruption creates an exercise in tension that's just breathtaking. She also pulls the very best out of an exceptional ensemble cast that includes John Boyega (STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS), Anthony Mackie (CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR), Hannah Murray (Game of Thrones) and Will Poulter (THE REVENANT) in a breakout role.
Thoroughly gripping and truly unforgettable, DETROIT is as relevant today as it was when it happened. It's an unmissable piece of filmmaking.
