Watch Let Him Have It
- 1 hr 55 min
In England in the 1950s, Derek Bentley, a mentally-challenged young man, is hanging out with petty criminals who are up to no good. Gang leader Chris Craig has seen too many American gangster films, but Derek is too pliant and won't get rid of these friends despite his parents' warnings. When the gang's burglary caper ends in tragedy and Derek is put on trial, the title becomes a point of inquiry: What did Derek mean when he shouted "Let Him Have It"? Was it a plea for surrender or an incitement to violence? The court's conclusion shook England to the core.
