Legendary director Spike Lee returns with a modern classic

In this hotly tipped comedy-drama, Spike Lee retells the improbable, yet true, story of a black police officer who managed to infiltrate the KKK. Co-produced by Get Out’s mastermind director Jordan Peele, with John David Washington – Denzel’s son – as the lead, Blackkklansman is a contemptuous commentary on America’s fraught past and turbulent present. In line with Lee’s earliest work, this picture seamlessly packs in laughs, tears and timely social critique.
