Fresh, exuberant and brilliantly paced, DOPE is a smart comedy about a group of geeks who, through a series of missteps, end up with a stash of drugs that they have to sell in order to survive. Malcolm (Shameik Moore) and his friends Jib (Tony Revolori) and Diggy (Kiersey Clemons) are the outcasts of their school in a tough, gang-ridden neighbourhood. Constantly on the run from bullies at school and the drug dealers in their hood, the friends bond over their obsession with '90s hip-hop culture and their punk band. When Malcolm inadvertently ends up with a stash of ecstasy belonging to a notorious dealer (A$AP Rocky), they are forced to sell it, which sets them off on a crazy adventure – all this while Malcolm is trying to get into Harvard. With a sparkling soundtrack, including new songs by Pharrell Williams, DOPE is energetic and laugh-out-loud funny.
