Heaven Sent


Based on Jon Krakauer’s 2003 book of the same name, Under the Banner of Heaven stars Andrew Garfield as detective Jeb Pyre, a devout Mormon who’s tasked with solving the gruesome 1984 murders of Brenda Wright Lafferty (Daisy Edgar-Jones) and her baby daughter in their Utah home. As Pyre investigat­es the case, he uncovers some shocking truths about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which leads him to question his faith. Oscarwinne­r Dustin Lance Black (Milk), who was raised in an LDS home, adapted the true-crime thriller for

TV. “My hope,” says Black, “is that it might shed light on the horrific brutalitie­s perpetrate­d in the name of God in our own backyards.”

TUNE IN! Under the Banner of Heaven premieres April 28 on Hulu.
