Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

Burden tells the incredible true story of Mike Burden (Garrett Hedlund) who opened the world famous Redneck Shop and KKK Museum on the historic town square of Laurens South Carolina in 1996, then was subsequently wrenched out of the clutches of this hate family through the love of a single mother (Andrea Riseborough) and the faith of a African American, Baptist Minister (Forest Whitaker). Together, they face down irate, vengeful and violent Klan members and win over Reverend Kennedy's skeptical parishioners, forming a true bond and forging a path towards redemption and forgiveness.

Burden is still a movie of faith with more virtues than failings, more ambition than merely pandering and more topicality than we’d care to admit.

For all his passion to tell this story, Heckler doesn’t seem sure of the best way to conclude it.

It’s an eyebrow-raising true tale, one aided and abetted onscreen by the solid cast and strong sense of commitment. But Heckler is caught somewhere between being a journalistic historian and a dramatist without seeming expert at either. His screenplay connects all the dots of the story with no sense of shaping or modulation.
