DEAR WHITE PEOPLE
Directed by Justin Simien
With Tyler James Williams, Tessa Thompson, Kyle Gallner
USA, 2014, 108 minutes, rated R
Set on a college campus, this comedy is knowing and self-aware. Samantha is a student whose radio broadcasts and viral Internet videos are used to call out the hypocrisies and micro-aggressions experienced by African Americans in their dealings with well-meaning Caucasians. Her campus is a hotbed of warring identities, and she herself is a contradiction. What emerges is a sprawling narrative that juggles race, sex, privilege and power with elegant agility.
"Justin Simien's first feature film [Dear White People]. . . is as smart and fearless a debut as I have seen from an American filmmaker in quite some time: knowing but not snarky, self-aware but not solipsistic, open to influence and confident in its own originality." A. O. Scott, The New York Times
