Acclaimed western FIVE FINGERS FOR MARSEILLES guns into theaters this September

12:06 AM



Pistol-packing acclaimed South African western "Five Fingers for Marseilles," a thrilling tale that takes its place alongside classics such as "Once Upon a Time in the West" and contemporaries like "The Proposition" and "No Country for Old Men," stares down the barrel of a national theatrical release September 7.

From filmmaker Michael Matthews and screenwriter Sean Drummond comes a thrilling western set against the backdrop of post-Apartheid South Africa.

"Five Fingers for Marseilles" takes place in a small town “governed” by dubious local officials, living in fear of a lawless mob; when an exiled outlaw returns home in search of solace and redemption, brotherhood and loyalty are fused with vengeance.

The residents of the colonial town of Marseilles are under the thumb of police oppression and only the young rebels known as the Five Fingers are willing to stand up to them.

Their battle is just, until Tau kills two policemen and flees the scene.

The remaining rebels disband while the banished Tau resorts to a life of crime.

Twenty years later, now known as feared outlaw The Lion of Marseilles, he is released from prison.

He returns home, desiring only peace and to reconnect with those he left behind.

The battle for South Africa’s freedom has been won, and former comrades-in-arms are in prominent positions as mayor, police chief, and pastor.

But it quickly becomes clear to Tau that Marseilles is caught in the grip of a vicious new threat — and he must reconstitute the Five Fingers to fight frontier justice.

Standing against former allies and new enemies, the re-formed Five Fingers saddle up and ride out, and put their lives at risk to save their beloved Marseilles.

Starring Vuyo Dabula, Hamilton Dhlamini, Zethu Dlomo, Kenneth Nkosi, Mduduzi Mabaso, Aubrey Poolo, Lizwi Vilakazi, Warren Masemola, Dean Fourie, Anthony Oseyemi, Brendon Daniels and Jerry Mofokeng, "Five Fingers for Masrseilles" opens September 7 -across the US via Uncork’d Entertainment.
