Duration :

Summary: What happens to an American town when something unexpected, unconscionable and unforgivable rips it apart and thrusts it into the national media spotlight? That is the question that led a New York City theatre troupe to the town of Laramie, Wyoming, to seek out residents whose lives were changed after a gay college student named Matthew Shepard was brutally beaten, tied to a fence and left for dead off a rural road. This groundbreaking HBO Films drama recreates the efforts of the troupe who interviewed the residents of Laramie in an effort to uncover what such a heinous crime meant to the people, their town and their country. A tremendous ensemble cast--including Dylan Baker, Tom Bower, Clancy Brown, Steve Buscemi, Nestor Carbonell, Kathleen Chalfant, Jeremy Davies, Clea DuVall, Peter Fonda, Ben Foster, Janeane Garofalo, Bill Irwin, Joshua Jackson, Terry Kinney, Laura Linney, Amy Madigan, Margo Martindale, Camryn Manheim, Christina Ricci, Lois Smith, Frances Sternhagen and Mark Webber--comes together for this unforgettable, one-of-a-kind film. Directed by Moises Kaufman; written by Moises Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project, based on the play by Moises Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project. (TV14) (AC)
