BFI London Film Festival Opening Night Gala

Regina King, Idris Elba and LaKeith Stanfield in The Harder They Fall

Jonathan Majors, Regina King and Idris Elba lead a stunning cast in this fast, fun and ultra-stylish new Western from debut feature director Jeymes Samuel (The Bullitts). 

When Rufus Buck (Elba) is sprung from prison, Nat Love (Majors) is determined to find him and seek revenge. Each man brings with him a loyal crew: riding with Love is Stagecoach Mary (Zazie Beetz), Bill Pickett (Edi Gagethi), quick-shooter Jim Beckwourth (RJ Cyler), and the unlikely ally Bass Reeves (the great Delroy Lindo), while Buck’s gang boasts the ‘Treacherous’ Trudy Smith (King) and Cherokee Bill (LaKeith Stanfield).

With incredible panache and detail, the film brings together legendary Black cowboys from across the ages to create an unabashedly rip-roaring story, with an excellent modern soundtrack, featuring Fela Kuti and Barrington Levy
