Directed by Shaka King
Starring: Lakeith Stanfield, Daniel Kaluuya, Jessie Plemons, Dominique Fishback

FBI informant William O’Neal (Lakeith Stanfield) infiltrates the Illinois Black Panther Party and is tasked with keeping tabs on their charismatic leader, Chairman Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya). A career thief, O’Neal revels in the danger of manipulating both his comrades and his handler, Special Agent Roy Mitchell (Jessie Plemons). Hampton’s political prowess grows just as he’s falling in love with fellow revolutionary Deborah Johnson. Meanwhile, a battle wages for O’Neal’s soul. Will he align with the forces of good? Or subdue Hampton and The Panthers by any means, as FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover commands?

In an unusual historical Oscar moment both Stanfield and Kaluuya were nominated for ‘Best Supporting Actor’ for their roles. Kaluuya won the BAFTA for his performance.
