Following Sundance, this comedy drama produced by Forest Whitaker and Pharrell Williams has been picked up for a wide release, and based on the trailer it’s easy to see why.
A nerd gets wrapped up in a drugs scandal and must go in deeper in order to get out alive – it’s a pretty typical plot that usually puts a white guy in a stereo-typically black world. Dope is an African American movie, but less Tyler Perry and more something that anyone can laugh with, cry with and enjoy.
Of course we’re just getting this from the trailer. It might be rubbish. We will know from 9th September 2015.
