Synopsis

Director John Singleton, who had an outstanding debut with Boyz 'n the Hood, made this thought-provoking story set in a fictional US university campus in the mid-1990s. A young man on a sports scholarship is at the centre of the action as he's introduced to the other groups on campus, all strictly demarcated under racial lines, and the film, aside from being entertaining, poses important questions about racial politics in America and elsewhere.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
