Dope got rave reviews and audience love at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.

It tells the story of Malcolm (Shameik Moore) a kid who is carefully surviving life in a tough neighborhood in Los Angeles. Don’t be fooled by the haircuts and the presence of gadgets like a Walkman, this is a movie set in the present day.

This looks like a fun take on the ‘young kids getting in over their heads’ movie genre. And it also sounds like there will be some fun music on the film’s soundtrack. I’m excited to see this one. The energy in this trailer is just amazing.
