ABOUT THE FILM:

Watch the powerful trailer here.

CROWN HEIGHTS is based on the incredible true story of Colin Warner who in 1980 was charged and convicted of a murder he didn’t commit. As the LA Times said, “CROWN HEIGHTS is a pointed reminder of the gaping flaws in the criminal justice system and the power of perseverance and loyalty to overcome them.” This incredible true story is based on the acclaimed This American Life piece and adapted by writer/director Matt Ruskin, with Lakeith Stanfield playing Colin Warner and Nnamdi Asomugha as Carl King.
