Detroit is a powerful movie that will touch you deeply.

After a police raid on an unlicensed club in Detroit in the summer of 1967, a mob starts forming while police are arresting suspects outside the club. They are soon throwing rocks at police, starting fires and looting nearby stores starting the Detroit riots. Two days later, the riots still in full force, a report of gunshots prompts the Detroit Police Department, the Michigan State Police and the Michigan Army National Guard to search and seize an annex of the nearby Algiers Motel. Several policemen start to flout procedure by forcefully and viciously interrogating guests to get a confession. Lead singer of The Dramatics, Larry Reed, and his friend Fred Temple were among the guests being interrogated. The interrogation doesn’t quite go according to plan and three unarmed men are killed by police by the end of the night, while several others are brutally beaten, including two women. Starring John Boyega, Anthony Mackie, Will Poultor and Jack Reynor.
