Dope, 2015


11 Sep 201517 Sep 2015

This vibrant and witty coming of age comedy follows the hilarious misadventures of three nerdy school friends in a tough Los Angeles neighbourhood, working hard to qualify for university while trying to emulate the 90s rappers they worship. One night they guilelessly attend a party run by Dom (A$AP Rocky), a local gang member, and accidently end up with a rucksack full of drugs. They subsequently attempt to sell off the stash before it's discovered, and endeavour to navigate the bizarre underworld they’ve been thrown into.

Writer-director Rick Famuyiwa (Our Family Wedding) has created another amiable, slickly paced and shot escapade, with excellent performances from the three geeks–turned-gangstas: Jib (Tony Revolori, The Grand Budapest Hotel), Diggy (Kiersey Clemons) and their charismatic leader Malcolm (Shameik Moore). Producer Forest Whitaker cameos as the film’s wry narrator.
