101 Studios has brought online the new trailer for Burden, opening in theaters on February 28, 2020. The film stars Garrett Hedlund, Forest Whitaker, Tom Wilkinson, Andrea Riseborough, Tess Harper, Crystal Fox, and Usher.
In the film, when a museum celebrating the Ku Klux Klan opens in a small South Carolina town, the idealistic Reverend Kennedy (Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker) resolves to do everything in his power to prevent long-simmering racial tensions from boiling over.
But the members of Kennedy’s congregation are shocked to discover that his plan includes sheltering Mike Burden (Garrett Hedlund), a Klansman whose relationships with both a single-mother (Andrea Riseborough) and a high-school friend (Usher Raymond) force him to re-examine his long-held beliefs.
After Kennedy helps Mike leave behind his violent past, the Baptist preacher finds himself on a collision course with manipulative KKK leader Tom Griffin (Tom Wilkinson). In the face of grave threats to himself and his family, the resolute Kennedy bravely pursues a path toward peace, setting aside his own misgivings in the hopes of healing his wounded community.
From Oscar-nominated filmmaker Robbie Brenner (Dallas Buyers Club) and writer/director Andrew Heckler comes this dramatic true story of compassion and grace in the American South.
The film’s producers are Robbie Brenner and Bill Kenwright. The executive producers include Garrett Hedlund, Forest Whitaker, Tom Wilkinson, Andrea Riseborough, Gabriela Revilla Lugo, Jeff Kwatinetz, Kevin Mckeon, Dan Farah, Gary Raskin, Charles Dombeck, Alastair Burlingham, Jeffrey Hecktman, Anna Chi, Scooter Braun, Robert Jones, Steve Potts, Jonathan Rae, Su Xue Qing, Zach Vella, Michelle Mason, Kaily Smith, Robert Gilpin, Wayne Marc Godfrey, David C.
