The Day Shall ComeFeatures
An incendiary political satire from British cult comedy icon Chris Morris.
Morris (director of Four Lions 2010 and creator of Brass Eye 1997–2001) teams up with Jesse Armstrong (co-writer of Peep Show 2003–15) for this ferocious take-down of American homeland security. Anna Kendrick stars as FBI agent Kendra Glack, who is tasked with bringing in wannabe revolutionary preacher Moses Al Shabaz (newcomer Marchánt Davis) on trumped-up terrorism charges. The only problem: Moses leads an ‘army’ of four in Florida, with no money and a strict aversion to weapons. The Day Shall Come is a pointed and profane black comedy that excoriates political paranoia and incompetence.
