The Critically Acclaimed Comedy From Writer/Director Rick Famuyiwa
Featuring Original Music by Pharrell Williams 

DOPE
It’s hard out here for a geek.

Available On Digital HD and DVD December 28

From writer/director Rick Famuyiwa (The WoodBrown Sugar) comes the critically acclaimed coming-of-age comedy DOPE, available on Digital HD and DVD December 28. Rising stars Shameik Moore (Baz Luhrmann’s “The Get Down”), Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel), and Kiersey Clemons (TV’s “Transparent”) play a trio of self-professed high school geeks and bandmates growing up in the hood who find themselves caught up in an unexpected adventure that will forever change the rhythm of their lives in this smartly humorous film set to the tune of classic ‘90s hip-hop and featuring original songs by Pharrell Williams.

Executive produced by Williams, co-executive produced by Sean Combs (Notorious), and co-starring Zoë Kravitz (DivergentMad Max: Fury Road), Kimberly Elise (John QDiary of a Mad Black Woman), Victoria’s Secret model Chanel Iman, Tyga, Blake Anderson (TV’s “Workaholics,” “Parks & Recreation”), and A$AP Rocky, DOPE first wowed audiences at the 2015 Sundance and Cannes Film Festivals. Now, audiences everywhere can experience the humour, heart, music and style of this fresh take on the high school comedy on DVD with awesome bonus features, including the Dope is Different featurette and a Music featurette.

Synopsis: Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is a brilliant geek who is obsessed with ‘90s hip-hop. He and his two best friends play in a punk band together and get hassled at high school for their throwback style. When illegal substances are hidden in his backpack at an underground dance club, his life gets extremely complicated. Malcolm will go to crazy lengths to achieve his dreams: getting into Harvard University, getting closer to his fantasy girl Nakia (Zoë Kravitz) and cashing in his fortune in bitcoins.

DOPE was produced by Forest Whitaker (Fruitvale StationSongs My Brothers Taught Me) and Nina Yang Bongiovi (Fruitvale StationSongs My Brothers Taught Me). Executive producers are Pharrell Williams, Michael Y. Chow (Fruitvale StationSongs My Brothers Taught Me), Rick Famuyiwa and David Lonner (TV’s “Devious Maids”).
