Sheriff

Rating:No Rating
Genre:Documentary
Release Date:January 1, 2004
Running time:76 minutes
Cast:Ronald E. Hewett
Director:Daniel Kraus

Description: Ronald E. Hewett is the sheriff of Brunswick County, NC, a small rural community where, prior to Hewett's election, the sheriff's office wasn't even open after 5:00 p.m. Hewett soon changed that, and has made it his business to move Brunswick County's law enforcement into the 21st century as big-city crime begins to creep into town. Sheriff is a documentary which offers a cinéma vérité view of Hewett at work as he investigates crimes ranging from murder and armed robbery to illegal video poker machines and a stolen truckload of ceramic lawn ornaments. Sheriff also offers a detailed profile of Hewett, a good-natured hometown boy who also has a firm dedication to law and order and a keen sense for local politics. Sheriff was screened in competition at the Chicago Documentary Film Festival and Cinequest Film Festival.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
