"A Startling History Lesson. A Chilling Detective Tale!" -Los Angeles Times

Starring two-time Oscar® winner Gene Hackman and Academy Award® nominee Willem Dafoe, Mississippi Burning "ranks as one of the most potent and insightful views of racial turmoil yet produced" (Variety). Nominated for six Oscars® and winner of an Academy Award® for Best Cinematography, this emotionally charged film vividly captures "a crucial chapter in American history" (Time)!

As three civil rights activist drive down a desolate stretch of highway, headlights ominously draw near. Telling each other to stay clam, they have no way of knowing that in minutes they will disappear into the night and spark one of the most explosive murder investigations in history. Enter straight-laced Ward (Dafoe) and deceptively easy-going Anderson (Hackman). Can these two philosophically opposed FBI agents overcome their differences and uncover the chilling mystery of a small Ku Klux Klan-ridden community before an entire town is torn apart by racism?
