(Film Screening) The Banker
Exclusive invite for BTFC Members! Join us for an Advanced Screening of Apple TV+’s film The Banker followed by a Q&A session with actress Nia Long.
Inspired by true events, The Banker centers on revolutionary businessmen Bernard Garrett (Anthony Mackie) and Joe Morris (Samuel L. Jackson), who devise an audacious and risky plan to take on the racially oppressive establishment of the 1960s by helping other African Americans pursue the American dream. Along with Garrett’s wife Eunice (Nia Long), they train a working class white man, Matt Steiner (Nicholas Hoult), to pose as the rich and privileged face of their burgeoning real estate and banking empire – while Garrett and Morris pose as a janitor and a chauffeur. Their success eventually draws the attention of the federal government, which threatens everything the four have built.
This Apple Original Film is powerful and thought-provoking.
The Banker’s creative team includes George Nolfi (Director/Writer), Brad Kane (Story), Niceole R. Levy (Screenplay), David Lewis Smith (Writer) and Stan Younger (Writer).
The film stars Academy Award® Nominee Samuel L. Jackson, BAFTA Award® Nominee Nicholas Hoult, NAACP Image Award® Nominee Anthony Mackie, and NAACP Image Award® Winner Nia Long.
The Banker premieres March 6, 2020.
