“It’s a hell of a thing, killing a man. Take away all he’s got and all he’s ever gonna have.” –Unforgiven

If that line from the 1992 Best Picture winner resonates with you, then here’s a film you should see. The winner of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize (World Cinema), To Kill a Man tells the story of Jorge, an unassuming father and husband whose neighborhood in Chile has become victimized by a local gang. As the stakes rise, Jorge must face up to his ideas of morality, masculinity, and patriarchal duty in order to ensure the safety of his family. Made with the pace and tension of a thriller, but embodied with the soul of a powerful social justice fable, Alejandro Fernández Almendras’ third feature film will resonate long after it has ended.
