Beckett made its world premiere at the 74th Locarno Film Festival this week and will debut exclusively on Netflix on Friday, August 13.
The film stars John David Washington as Beckett, an American tourist vacationing in Greece who becomes the target of a manhunt after a devastating accident. Forced to run for his life and desperate to get across the country to the American embassy to clear his name, tensions escalate as the authorities close in, political unrest mounts, and Beckett falls even deeper into a dangerous web of conspiracy.
