Probable Cause is a 2012 crime thriller directed by Sergio Guerrero and starring Lisa Arrindell, Gabriel Burgess, and Memphis Cade. The movie delves into the story of a young African American couple who are victims of racial profiling and police brutality. The film is based on a true story and is inspired by a number of real-life cases in which African Americans have been unjustly targeted by law enforcement authorities.

The movie opens with a sequence of events that lead to the arrest of a young African American man named Darius (Gabriel Burgess). Darius and his girlfriend, Tori (Lisa Arrindell), are driving home from a party when they are pulled over by a white police officer, who accuses Darius of running a stop sign. The situation quickly escalates into a violent confrontation, and Darius is arrested and charged with a number of crimes, including assault on a police officer.

As the case goes to trial, it becomes clear that there is little evidence to support the charges against Darius. However, the prosecution is able to convince the jury that Darius is guilty based on his race and his previous criminal record. Despite the efforts of Tori and her lawyer, Scott (Memphis Cade), to prove Darius's innocence, he is ultimately convicted and sentenced to prison.

Darius's arrest and conviction have a profound impact on Tori and her community. Tori becomes increasingly passionate about the issue of racial profiling and police brutality, and she begins to speak out about her experience. She joins forces with other activists, including a pastor named Reverend Jackson (played by the late Robert Guillaume), to demand justice for Darius and other victims of police violence.

As Tori's activism heats up, she faces backlash from the police department and the community at large. She receives threats and is harassed by law enforcement officials, who accuse her of being anti-police and stirring up trouble. Despite the danger, Tori refuses to back down, and she continues to fight for justice for Darius and for all victims of police brutality.

Probable Cause is a powerful and timely movie that addresses the issue of racial profiling and police violence in a compelling and thought-provoking way. The film is well-acted, with powerful performances from Lisa Arrindell and Gabriel Burgess, who bring depth and nuance to their respective roles. Memphis Cade is also excellent as Scott, Tori's lawyer and confidant.

The movie is not without its flaws, however. Some of the dialogue is a little heavy-handed, and some of the plot twists are a bit predictable. Additionally, the film occasionally feels like it is trying too hard to make a political statement, rather than letting the story speak for itself. Nevertheless, these issues are minor in the grand scheme of things, and they do not detract from the overall impact of the movie.

Overall, Probable Cause is a must-watch movie for anyone interested in social justice issues, particularly those related to racism and police violence. The film is a powerful and moving testament to the resilience and determination of those who fight for justice, even in the face of overwhelming opposition. It is a timely reminder that the fight for equality and justice is far from over, and that we must all continue to do our part to create a more just and equitable society.

Probable Cause is a 2015 crime movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 27 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.2.
