Dir Spike Lee
With Danny Aiello, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee
120min
Digital
Certificate 15

What starts as a spat in an Italian restaurant escalates to a tragic event in the neighbourhood, in this astute, funny and moving film featuring great performances across the board. Another honorary Academy Award-winner, Spike Lee shamefully wasn’t even nominated for Best Picture or Director for this tale of racial tension in Brooklyn. Lee’s screenplay did receive a nomination, but lost out to Dead Poets Society.

Also available on BFI Player.
