    Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Denzel Washington plays Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, a man who, in the prime of his boxing career, finds himself wrongfully convicted of murder. Sentenced to life in prison, Carter’s published memoir, The 16th Round, inspired a teenager (Vicellous Reon Shannon) from Brooklyn and three Canadian activists (Deborah Kara Unger, John Hannah, Liev Schreiber) to join forces with Carter to prove his innocence. Their extraordinary efforts ultimately secure his release, leaving “Hurricane” to sum up his 20 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit by simply stating, “Hate got me into this place; love got me out.” Don’t miss the movie Rolling Stone called, “A stirring fight for freedom! Denzel Washington at his powerful, poignant best!”
