The Palace Movie Club is delighted to invite you to be among the first audiences in Australia to see the electrifying historical biopic Judas and the Black Messiah (MA15+) at a special First-Look Preview Screening on Wednesday, March 10.
A dramatization of historical events, Judas and the Black Messiah boasts incredible performances from Daniel Kaluuya (receiving a Golden Globe Nomination for Best Supporting Actor), LaKeith Stanfield, Jesse Plemons and Martin Sheen and fearlessly approaches its racially charged material in a powerful historical film with contemporary relevance.
FBI informant William O’Neal (LaKeith Stanfield) infiltrates the Illinois Black Panther Party and is tasked with keeping tabs on their charismatic leader, Chairman Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya). A career thief, O’Neal revels in the danger of manipulating both his comrades and his handler, Special Agent Roy Mitchell (Jesse Plemons). Hampton’s political prowess grows just as he’s falling in love with fellow revolutionary Deborah Johnson (Dominique Fishback). Meanwhile, a battle wages for O’Neal’s soul. Will he align with the forces of good? Or subdue Hampton and The Panthers by any means, as FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover (Martin Sheen) commands?

★★★★ “The movie mourns what might have been and nags with what we’ll never know.” – Boston Globe
“A powerful, and candidly sympathetic, political biography with contemporary relevance, and a morality tale set forth as an exciting action adventure.” – Wall Street Journal
