Director: Spike Lee; Cast: John David Washington, Adam Driver; 135 min., R (for language, including racial epithets, disturbing/violent material, some sexual references); Winner: Grand Prix, Cannes Film Festival

From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award-winning GET OUT. “It is an exhilarating, distressing, funny and profound film, with one of the more memorable film scores in years, from composer Terence Blanchard… It’s a Spike Lee joint that is not to be missed.” —Lindsey Bahr, Associated Press
