Burden (2018)Watch full movie now
Oscar winner Forest Whitaker (Godfather of Harlem) is an idealistic reverend facing the Ku Klux Klan in the Sundance Audience Award-winning drama Burden. Based on a true story, it stars Saturn Award nominee Garrett Hedlund (Mudbound) as KKK member Mike Burden, whose journey intersects with the reverend’s, bringing hope for redemption from hatred.
Co-starring are BAFTA nominee Andrea Riseborough (Birdman), Oscar nominees Tom Wilkinson (The Full Monty) and Tess Harper (Breaking Bad), Crystal Fox (Big Little Lies), and Grammy winner Usher.
The film is written and directed by Andrew Heckler, who won the Audience Award at Sundance for the film, and co-produced by Oscar nominee Robbie Brenner, who produced Dallas Buyers Club.
Burden has a 97% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, with IndieWire saying, “Garrett Hedlund’s best performance anchors [a] searing true-life KKK redemption drama”, calling it “a wrenching and real story that’s both universal and eerily timely.”
