True-life drama set in 1970s' South Africa about white police captain Andre Stander (Thomas Lane), deeply disillusioned by the dehumanizing injustices of apartheid, who, along with two accomplices, bucks the racist system he had spent his life enforcing by pulling off a series of increasingly audacious bank robberies, which he rationalizes as a form of civil disobedience. In spite of a dynamic performance by Lane, director Bronwen Hughes walks a dangerous line between painting a complex portrait of moral outrage and romanticizing Stander's criminal spree as a legitimate form of political protest. Recurring violence, including an intense riot sequence, a few sexual encounters, some nudity, as well as rough and crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
