Love & Basketball

From the time they were kids, Monica and Quincy were meant to be together. Over the course of two decades, they have an on-again-off-again relationship while pursuing their mutual dream careers in basketball. They play the same game and share the same dream. All is fair in love and basketball. MPAA Rating: PG-13

School Daze

Innovative filmmaker, Spike Lee (She’s Gotta Have It), brings to the screen a music-filled, off-beat contemporary comedy that takes an unforgettable look at black college life. Amidst gala coronations, football, fraternities, parades, and parties, the stars of the film-Laurence Fishburne (“Dap” Dunlap), an intense student who encourages his buddies (“DaFellas”) to fight for his beliefs; Giancarlo Esposito (Julian “Big Brother Almighty” Eaves), out to strengthen the Greek system with his Gamma PhiGamma fraternity brothers; Spike Lee (“Half-Pint”), driven to become a “Gamma man”; and Tisha Campbell (Jane Toussaint), leader of the sorority, “Gamma Rays,” find themselves caught up in romance and relationships/rituals and rivalries during one outrageous homecoming weekend. With dynamic music, including EU’s hit “Da Butt”, and dance numbers choreographed by Otis Sallid (Fame), Lee successfully challenges viewpoints about self-identity and self-esteem in this original, contemporary musical comedy. MPAA Rating: R
