Lawman

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Matthew Gentile[/vc_column_text][edgtf_title_with_dots display_separator=”yes” separator_color=”#000000″][vc_column_text]Based on True Events. 1875, Indian Territory: former slave Bass Reeves, is the first African-American to be deputized by the U.S. Marshal service as a federal peace officer. On his first mission, Bass charges into the desert after two outlaws and gets into a shootout where he kills one man and captures the other, Glen Huddleston, also an African-American man and former slave. Over the course of their journey back to Fort Smith, Glen questions Bass’ choice of career and tries to psych him out in an unorthodox attempt at escape, a tactic that seems to work as Bass begins to question his own mind regarding the idea of justice and choosing to fight for a law and a country that has never fought for him.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”30px”][vc_column_text]USA, 2016
