Watch The Powerful Trailer For The Sundance Award-Winning Police Brutality Drama, 'Monsters And Men'

Neon has released the first trailer for the Sundance selection, Monsters and Men. 

It is the feature directorial debut of Reinaldo Marcus Green, who is a Sundance Institute Directors and Screenwriters Lab alumnus (S&A spoke to him about the fellowship here).

This interwoven narrative explores the aftermath of a police killing of a black man. The film is told through the eyes of the bystander who filmed the act, an African-American police officer and a high-school baseball phenom inspired to take a stand.

It stars John David Washington, Anthony Ramos, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Chanté Adams, Nicole Beharie, Rob Morgan.

In a review of the film, Shadow and Act‘s Aramide Tinubu wrote, “Superbly acted and impactful, Monsters and Men is a film about having the difficult conversations even when the answers to our questions might not be readily available.”
