A reimagined revenge western, The Harder They Fall is the first film directed by singer-songwriter Jaymes Samuel, AKA The Bullitts.
The film tells the story of Nat Love, an African-American cowboy who became one of the most famous Black heroes of the Old West. When his enemy Rufus Buck is released from prison, Love rounds up his old gang of outlaws to track Buck down and settle scores.
With a cast that includes Idris Elba, Jonathan Majors, Lakieth Stanfield, Regina King and Zazie Beetz, The Harder They Fall is a new take on the American western, aiming to reclaim the African Americans who have been overlooked in both the cinema genre and the history books.
