Originally Idlewild was written as a music video treatment, until the success of their album "Speakerboxxx/The Love Below" encouraged them to expand it into a feature film. The film was going to premiere on HBO but it was ultimately decided to release it in theaters. See more »

This movie is one of the best musical films I had ever seen. This film makes you wanna see this film over and over and over again. It dosen't matter if you hate Outkast, this film will make you love them and their music they play. Byran Barber's directing of the idea he chose this picture is excellent and even though he's a music video director, he still makes it a great film. If you want to see this film with your kids, then it's better if you make sure that they will be mature about nudity.
This film is a beautifully made film and I believe that this film should at least win an Oscar for their main song by Outkast, I don't know the name, but it has a catchy tune. GREAT FILM 10/10
