Watch: Lakeith Stanfield Stars as Wrongfully Convicted Man in ‘Crown Heights’

21 July 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | | See recent Backstage news »

After a teenager is killed in the streets of Flatbush, Brooklyn in 1980, the police pressure a child witness to identify a suspect. Based on the testimony, Colin Warner, an 18 year old from Crown Heights, is wrongfully convicted of the murder and sentenced to life in prison. Audience Award winner at the Sundance Film Festival, “Crown Heights” is the true story of a man’s fight to prove that man’s innocence. The Amazon Studios flick follows not only Warner’s time in jail, but also Colin’s childhood friend Carl “Kc” King as he devotes his life to fighting for his best friend’s freedom. Written and directed by Matt Ruskin (“Booster,” “The Hip Hop Project”), the film stars Lakeith Stanfield (“Atlanta”) as Colin Warner and Nnamdi Asomugha as Carl King. This adaptation of a “This American Life” episode is set for an Aug. 25 theatrical release. Check out the trailer »
