Spike Lee's
DO THE RIGHT THING

In his Academy Award Nominated masterpiece, Spike Lee infuses his own visually powerful style of filmmaking with remarkable humor and drama, brought to life by a memorable cast of characters. It's the hottest day of the year, and with racial tensions rising to the surface, this scorching 24-hour period will change the lives of its residents forever.

Brand new 4K digital restoration. Set on one block of Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy neighborhood, at the height of summer, this masterpiece by Spike Lee confirmed him as a writer and filmmaker of peerless vision and passionate social engagement. Over the course of a single day, the easygoing interactions of a cast of unforgettable characters—Da Mayor, Mother Sister, Mister Señor Love Daddy, Tina, Sweet Dick Willie, Buggin Out, Radio Raheem, Sal, Pino, Vito, and Lee’s Mookie among them—give way to heated confrontations as tensions rise along racial fault lines, ultimately exploding into violence. Do the Right Thing is a landmark in American cinema, as politically and emotionally charged and as relevant now as when it first hit the big screen. (USA, 1989, 120 Mins., R, English, Dir. Spike Lee)
