Featured Film – Do the Right Thing
R | 2 h 5 m | Drama/Comedy | 1989
Written, directed and produced by Spike Lee, ‘Do the Right Thing’ focuses on a single day in the lives of a racially diverse group of people living and working in a lower-class neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York. At the center of the story is the complex issues of social class and race, as well as the moral decisions the characters make and the direct effects resulting from the way people interact with each other.
“A pulsating homage to life on New York’s streets, achieved thanks to Lee’s sleepless eye, but a passionate-yet-dignified study of racism, too.”– Lloyd Bradley, Empire
