A Dry White Season (1989)

Marlon Brando as "Ian McKenzie"

Teacher Ben du Toit (Donald Sutherland) mostly ignores the problems of apartheid in South Africa until he discovers that the son of a gardener (Winston Ntshona) at his school has been killed by corrupt policeman Stolz (Jürgen Prochnow). Du Toit persuades human rights attorney Ian McKenzie (Marlon Brando) to try the long-shot case against Stolz. During the trial, Du Toit's transformation into an advocate for justice is so absolute that it distances him from his family.

Academy Award (1989) Nominated Best Supporting Actor
British Academy of Film & Television Arts (1989) Nominated Actor in a Supporting Role
Golden Globe (1989) Nominated Best Performance By an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture
