Product Notes

A deft, often chilling look at the unexploded dynamite of guard/prisoner relations, the Keeper is a searing psychological drama stunningly acted by Ginacarlo Esposito (Do the Right Thing, Fresh, Malcom X), African superstar Isaach de Bankole (Night on Earth, Chocolat and Regina Taylor ("I'll Fly Away," a Family Thing). Like the best work of Charles Burnett and Spike Lee, Joe Brewster's the Keeper looks beyond the stylish mayhem of "hood" cinema for something more real. In doing so, it offers the viewer both a riveting story and a range of characters that richly illuminate black America today. Giancarlo Esposito is Paul Lamont, a corrections officer at the King's County House of Detention in Brooklyn. Disillusioned with the justice system and those who enter it, Paul isn't sure what he believes in anymore. His life is changed when he meets Jean-Baptiste (De Bankole), a Haitian immigrant imprisoned for rape he swears he did not commit. Paul is moved by the young man's plight and helps him with his bail, eventually opening his home to him. Paul and his wife Angela (Taylor) soon find themselves under the spell of a charming stranger, with tragic results, as they learn that even acts of mercy have a price.
