Judas and the Black Messiah
Director Shaka King's JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH offers an in-depth, humanizing look at the Black Panthers' Chicago branch, its leader Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya), and petty thief-turned-informant William O'Neal (LaKeith Stanfield). FBI agent Roy Mitchell (Jesse Plemons) forces O'Neal to join the Black Panther Party to help the bureau gain intel on the group. But as O'Neal gets entrenched in the Black Panthers' fight for racial and social liberation, he becomes more conflicted about being seen as a traitor to his people. Dominique Fishback co-stars as Hampton's fiancée, Deborah Johnson, who endures the risk of Hampton's rise to prominence while carrying his child.
