Gunpowder

Gunpowder

Available on HBO Nordic
In 1603, as England is engaged in war against Spain, tensions are high in domestic society due to the brutal persecution of Catholics. Robert Catesby, a young Catholic nobleman played by Kit Harrington, has recently lost both his wife and his father and, angry at his perception of punishment from society, conjures a literally explosive plot to kill King James I when he sits in the houses of Parliament. He joins with a group of equally aggrieved men, including the infamous Guy Fawkes, and they set out to enact vengeance in a series of events that are still commemorated in Britain to the present day.
Starring Kit Harington, Peter Mullan, Liv Tyler
