In the wake of the 2015 death of Freddie Gray in police custody, Baltimore was a city on the edge. Peaceful protests and destructive riots erupted in the immediate aftermath of Gray's death, while the city waited to hear the fate of the six police officers involved in the incident, reflecting the deep divisions between authorities and the community -- and underscoring the urgent need for reconciliation. Directed by Sonja Sohn (one of the stars of the HBO series The Wire), Baltimore Rising follows activists, police officers, community leaders and gang affiliates, who struggle to hold Baltimore together, even as the homicide rate hits record levels, and explores how to make change when change is hard. The strife that grips Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray exposes longstanding fault lines in a distraught and damaged community. Baltimore Rising chronicles the determined efforts of people on all sides who fight for justice and work to make their city better, sometimes coming together in unexpected ways, discovering a common humanity where before they often saw each other only as adversaries.

Firstly, the cast. They are all excellent and experienced actors and actresses and they did their job on the level that it should be done ! Starting with Elijah Cummings. His acting ability is great and he made 100% effort to role. Certainly one of his best roles. Genard Shadow Barr, who is absolutely amazing and most likely one of the best actors in Hollywood! This beautiful movie is made for everyone!

Devin Allen is one the best actors around. He is always so good. Never seen him underperformed. He gives a great shot here too! Awesome movie ever!

Well thought out script. Not sure it is a five but better than a four star.
