The Glass Shield

Michael Boatman ("Spin City") stars in this dark tale as a starry-eyed rookie cop who is the first minority in his state trooper barracks - a tenuous position to be in, and one that becomes literally life-threatening when he turns against his brother officers in the investigation of a suspicious murder. Ice Cube, Lori Petty, Elliott Gould, Bernie Casey, Wanda de Jesus, Michael Ironside and M. Emmet Walsh costar in this slick, classy thriller from writer/director Charles Burnett ("Killer of Sheep," "To Sleep with Anger").
