Liberty Stands Still

Directed by Kari Skogland
Canada / Germany, 2002 (fiction, 92 minutes, colour, English)

Film Description:
"The heiress to and co-president of America's largest gun manufacturing corporation is on her way to the theater when her cell phone rings. As she stands in the street, the red site-laser hitting her chest is proof the caller is dead serious in his threats. Now she finds herself at the mercy of the very thing that made her rich: a gun and a person with his finger on the trigger."

Notes about Liberty Stands Still


Quote about Liberty Stands Still

"[Director] Kari Skogland (Men With Guns) makes Wesley Snipes a high-tech, ex-CIA sniper, whose target is Liberty Wallace (Linda Fiorentino), a woman who inherited an arms business. Snipes' character is out to avenge the death of his daughter, killed in a school shooting by a boy with a high-powered weapon. If there's a feminist moral in this tightly plotted, highly strung thriller it's that women can be ruthless with the best of the men."
