Shot Caller (NI Premiere)
Recently released from prison, a gang member finds himself forced by his leaders to orchestrate a major crime with a rival gang
The story of Shot Caller is a tragedy, featuring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game Of Thrones), with a tour-de- force performance, as Jacob, a successful, white- collar businessman sentenced to jail for involuntary manslaughter after running a red light and killing his best friend while driving under the influence. Subsequently, over the course of ten years, the “human animal” emerges in Jacob; he becomes a ruthless savage, a reluctant pawn in the corrupt, unorganised U.S. prison system.
Cert: 15 (TBC)
