Winner of the Special Jury Prize at this year's Sundance Film Festival, "Monsters And Men" is a tense, hot-button-issue drama about how a Brooklyn neighborhood is thrown into a state of unrest after being forced to deal with a controversial police shooting.

Featuring an ensemble cast led by John David Washington (HBO's Ballers, upcoming BlacKkKlansman), Anthony Ramos (Hamilton, Netflix's She's Gotta Have It), and Kelvin Harrison Jr. (It Comes at Night), the film offers a fictional tale that is seemingly inspired by the tragic death of Eric Garner, yet told from multiple perspectives including an African-American police offer, a rising baseball star-turned-local activist, and a startled eye-witness.

Co-starring Chante Adams (Roxanne Roxanne), Jasmine Cephas Jones (Hamilton), Nicole Beharie (TV's Sleepy Hollow), Joe Tippett (TV's Rise), Cara Buono (Stranger Things), and Rob Morgan (Mudbound), the film marks the auspicious feature debut of writer-director Reinaldo Marcus Green, who previously made the acclaimed Sundance short "Stop," which also dealt with racial profiling and police discrimination.

Acquired by the newly minted indie film distributor NEON, "Monsters And Men" will be released in theaters later in the fall.
