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.

This film really is everything the critics have been saying. Stupendous, visually spellbinding, brilliantly acted and very funny.

I was pleasantly surprised! This movie certainly turned out better than expected. It has all the ingredients of a successful film. What really got me to watch it was the curiosity of how Elijah Cummings and Devin Allen work together.

This movie was delightful, actually. Never been a big Devin Allen fan, but he was outstanding here.
