Storyline

A social satire that follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where controversy breaks out over a popular but offensive black-face party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film explores racial identity in acutely-not-post-racial America while weaving a universal story of forging one's unique path in the world.

Smart, funny, twisted satire
23 July 2014 | by (Cincinnati, Oh) – See all my reviews

I give this movie an 8. It is funny, but can be uncomfortable at times. Its a movie I do not expect everybody to get. Like Spike Lee's do the right thing, It will make some feel uncomfortable and immediately go on the defense- which in turn makes them not appreciate the comedy the writing, the cast or the message.

This movie shows real people, real thoughts, real characters. It not glossed over , sugar coated characters ( nor extremist).

The movie offers different view points on what it is like to be a black person in this suppose to be "post racial" country that we live in.

I would give it a look, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie!
