Stephen Lang is the big Hollywood name in the cast of this new account of Gandhi’s final days and the motives of those who hated his idealism, attention-grabbing fasts and pacifism.
No, Lang isn’t playing Abraham Lincoln (an inspiration to the Mahatma), but Lincoln makes an appearance here.
Jesus San plays Mohandis K. Gandhi in this tale of intrigue, the split of the Subcontinent into Hindu and Muslim (Pakistan) states and the murder of a civil rights icon.
This one has had several titles — “The Gandhi Conspiracy,” “Solar Eclipse: Depth of Darkness.”
“The Gandhi Murder” is probably the least inflammatory title of those. It opens Jan. 30.
