‘Dope’

DOPE_OFFICIAL_POSTER‘Fresh’ and ‘exuberant’ have been bandied around to describe Dope. And the descriptions hit the nail on the head.

The feature has the charm of the toothy, ear to ear grin of lead, Malcolm (relative newcomer Shameik Moore) in spite of its subject – drug dealing in the LA suburb of Inglewood, California. But this ain’t no intense, tattooed, macho, bling dripping, threatening strut. Malcolm and his mates are nerds – and cute with it, as are the gang leader Dom (rapper Rakim Mayers), ‘his’ girl Nakia (Zoe Kravitz) and just about everybody else in the film!
