Saw the Atlanta premiere of Supremacy as part of the Pan African Film Festival. The movie is about a recently released white supremacist who is picked up by his lady friend. Along the way, things go array and they have to seek refuge in the home of an ex-convict (Danny Glover). The former prisoner is set not to go back to prison while Mr. Walker (Danny Glover) is set to lead his family to safety. A high stakes film that is based on a real life story. According to the director who was at the screening, the story was shot in 10 days. Danny Glover shared that it was a team effort and they were free to share their true emotion of this tense movie. This movie touches on the complexity of family, society, and justice as the characters fight to find a path to their own escape. It is a star performance by Danny Glover as he attempts to keep calm during the rage of emotion.
