1991. USA. Dir: John Singleton. With Cuba Gooding Jr., Ice Cube. 112 min.
Coming of age is no easy task, especially in South Central L.A. This tale of boyz and men trying to do the right thing remains as wrenching and relevant as it was 20 years ago, thanks to the effortless camaraderie among its cast and the vitality imbued by Singleton – the first Black director nominated for an Oscar (and still the youngest nominee overall).
Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
