The Purge | 2013 | Lena Headey, Ethan Hawke


Ethan Hawke and Rhys Wakefield star in a violent dystopian thriller from writer-director James DeMonaco. Attempting to reduce overall levels of violent crime, the USA has sanctioned one night per year in which citizens can commit any crime they like without fear of prosecution or hindrance.

And it seems to have worked: crime statistics are down and the shattered US economy is resurrected; although whether it’s thanks to national catharsis or the extermination of the poor and weak is open to debate. Better placed to survive the maelstrom than most is James Sandin (Hawke), a salesman for a security company, whose products theoretically make his house an impregnable fortress. But, during The Purge of 2022, a Samaritan act leads to a masked gang leader (Wakefield) and his vicious followers giving the Sandin family a lethal ultimatum…

Also starring Lena Headey as Sandin’s wife Mary.
