Wyatt Russell Talks About His Love of Filmmaking and Under the Banner of Heaven

The actor also talked about his journey to acting and how he approached difficult scenes.

The story follows Detective Jeb Pyre (Andrew Garfield), who is a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

He and Bill Taba (Gil Birmingham), investigate the Lafferty's.

This leads Pyre to question his faith and causes him to question it in new ways.

The seven episodes of Under the Banner of Heaven feature flashbacks that explore the history of the LDS religion and the devastating consequences of holding on to it.

They are heartbreaking and unsettling and all of the actors show compassion.

Wyatt Russell plays Dan Lafferty as a man who eventually shatters his notion of true

faith in order to justify and accept the horrendous actions he commits.

His performance is complex, multilayered, charming, and terrifying.
