NARRATIVE FEATURE | 95 MIN | 2010

LEGACY

When a military effort to tackle a British-born Ukrainian arms dealer ends catastrophically, Black Ops soldier Malcolm Gray lands in a military hospital to overcome the torture he was subjected to. After nearly a year, Gray returns to Brooklyn and moves into a rundown apartment to reflect on the inconsistencies of the botched assignment. But Gray soon gets caught up in another impossible mission: to expose the corruption of a high-powered senator on the verge of announcing his presidential campaign. …A senator who also happens to be his brother.

A riveting performance from Idris Elba (Obsessed, The Wire) fuels this bold and ambitious political thriller, hinged on Gray's crumbling and claustrophobic mental state. Rife with tension and suspense, Legacy—emerging talent Thomas Ikimi's follow-up to his highly acclaimed low-budget pic Limbo (2004)—is a powerful chamber drama fortified with impressive cinematography and sound design that bring to vivid life a constricting web of conspiracy.
