Based on a true story, STANDER is the latest feature from up and coming director Bronwen Hughes (Forces of Nature).

Featuring a pumping David Holmes original soundtrack (Oceans 11 & 12), the DVD of STANDER will also includes an Audio Commentary from Bronwen Hughes, Anatomy of a Scene, Deleted Beach Scene along with the theatrical trailer.
Set in the late 70s and early 80s, STANDER is based on the amazing true story of white South African police captain Andre Stander (Thomas Jane), who suffers a crisis of conscience after participating in the brutal killing of rioting blacks while in the line of duty. Stander decided to defy the very system he was a part of an set off on an audacious crime spree – robbing banks during his lunch hour and then returning to the scene of the crime to lead the investigation!
Finally caught by the same police force he worked with, Stander was jailed and subsequently befriended by Allan Heyl (David Patrick O’Hara) and Lee McCall (Dexter Fletcher). Following a daring jailbreak, the ‘Stander’ Gang committed a large number of bank heists, which grew increasingly bold as time went on. With their increasingly outrageous disguises the gang were robbing 4 or 5 banks in a single day. In the eyes of the public, their blatant disregard for authority made them South Africa’s most popular anti-heroes. To the police, however, Stander and his gang were the most wanted men in the country!
Stander was released on 5th September retailling at £15.99.
