The Quarry

1998 NR 112 mins

"A well-acted, first-rate venture into mystery and suspense!"-The New York Times

The Quarry begins as a manhunt for a criminal but soon weaves into a rich, intriguing tale that questions race, justice and morality.After a mysterious fugitive kills a man on a deserted road near a small South African coastal town, he takes on the identity of his victim -- a Baptist minister who is coming to take over the local church.While the town residents unknowingly accept him as their new minister, the local police captain discovers the body and arrests two petty thieves for the crime.

Acclaimed Irish actor John Lynch (Angel Baby, Sliding Doors, In the Name of the Father) stars as the strangely sympathetic fugitive who battles inner demons while struggling with the ambiguities of right and wrong in this "excellent film willing to grapple with daunting human and political complexities."
