Rick Famuyiwa / US, 2015 / 103 min.

A dazzling coming of age comedy revolving around computer geek Malcolm, who hopes to be admitted to top university Harvard, the flagship of the white Ivy League. To do that, he first needs to cut himself off from drug dealer Dom. Director Rick Famuyiwa came up with a worthy successor to Boyz n the Hood with this film that is bursting with humour and full of references to old-school 1990s hip hop.
