Overview

Newly minted Ron Stallworth (Washington) is Colorado Springs’ first African-American police detective. Itching to start working on a big case, he phones the local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan and – surprise, surprise – gets a call back from David Duke (Grace), the KKK’s Grand Wizard, himself. Stallworth, over the phone and using his white Jewish colleague Flip (Driver) as his avatar, grows more influential within the organisation, while secretly working to bring them down.

Spike Lee’s latest, a rousing crime drama with stark moments of levity, was rapturously received at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
