Storyline

A just paroled white supremacist and his ruthless girlfriend kill a cop and take an African American family hostage. Meanwhile, Sobecki, the heavily-tattooed supremacist leader who oversees his criminal empire from behind bars, is not thrilled when he learns of his charge's screw-up. The patriarch of the family, an ornery ex-con himself, must rely on his wit and understanding of the racist mind to find a plan to free his family, but not before he confronts his own brand of bigotry and anger.

Trivia

Officer Trejo was killed with a sawed-off shotgun, unlike in the film, where he is shot by a pistol. His service pistol was stolen from his corpse, which would explain the second gun Brenda is shown brandishing. See more »

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.
