Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty) reunite for this impassioned, gut-wrenching film depicting the 1967 Detroit riots, an episode of brutal violence, stemming from tensions between African-American citizens and an institutionally racist police force, which saw 43 people killed and the army deployed. John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) plays a hotel security guard drawn in to a grotesque showdown at the Algiers Motel. A superbly choreographed film, Detroit resists simplification of a complex, troubling and unfortunately still highly relevant chapter in America’s social history.
