Re-discover this 80s musical-comedy, a sassy Spike Lee joint.

Dir Spike Lee
With Laurence Fishburne, Giancarlo Esposito, Tisha Campbell
Spike Lee’s musical-comedy is based on his own experiences at a leading (historically) black college in Atlanta, and focuses on ‘Dap’, a politically active student at loggerheads with the leader of a rival fraternity. Meanwhile, trouble is brewing with the town locals who resent the college boys. For all its upbeat musical pizzazz, the film never ceases highlighting some of the more serious issues facing these different groups.
