Quirky Black Films For the Win: DOPE Is Back in Theaters This Weekend

Yessss....I am still kicking myself for missing this the first time it was in theaters, so I am glad that DOPE (the quirky coming-of-age movie I hyped up last year on the blog) will be re-released in theaters this Friday, September 4. Executive Producer Pharrell Williams announced it today on Twitter:

This great news also means that the demand was pretty high for it, a huge coo for a black independent film that doesn't have a whole lot of big names attached to it. But Zoë Kravitz, Kimberly Elise and Keith Stanfield are among the cast, and it is co-produced by Williams and Forest Whitaker. 

In case you're not familiar with the film, here's some information about it:

DOPE tells the story of Malcolm (Shameik Moore) who is carefully surviving life in a tough neighborhood in Los Angeles. A chance invitation to an underground party leads him into an adventure that could allow him to go from being a geek, to being dope, to ultimately being himself.

Now I know what I'm doing this Labor Day weekend. Anyone else?

That's awesome. I caught Dope when it was in theaters the first time and enjoyed it. I hope you do too!
