Chiwetel Ejiofor & Jim Caviezel star in Savannah.
The film tells the life story of Ward Allen (Caviezel), an Oxford educated man who instead of taking the expected career path such an education would provide, teams with Christmas Moultrie (Ejiofor) — a man born into slavery, but now free — and starts a business providing the town of Savannah with ducks they hunt and kill themselves. The problem? New laws have made their way of life illegal, but that doesn’t stop them one bit. As you’ll see in the scene below their fiery and eloquent defences in court make them local heroes, while also allowing them to skip the long arm of the law.
The film also stars Jaimie Alexander, Hal Holbrook, Sam Shepard and Jack McBrayer.
Annette Haywood-Carter directs.
Savannah is out on August 23rd and will be available on VOD starting on September 24th
