OFFICIAL SELECTION: Toronto International Film Festival

Eddie Murphy portrays real-life legend Rudy Moore, a struggling singer and comedian working in a record store in early-1970s Hollywood. Every type of hustler populates the neighborhood, most with a wicked repertoire of obscene insults. Moore begins picking up their patter, drawn from the rich African-American tradition of "the dozens." He creates a stage character, Dolemite the pimp, records some especially profane routines, and soon rockets from shop clerk to ghetto superstar. It's not long before he starts making movies.

With a cast that includes Craig Robinson, Keegan-Michael Key, Da'Vine Joy Randolph, Tituss Burgess, and some standout surprise cameos, Dolemite Is My Name is a celebration of Black creativity from one of comedy's greatest entertainers. Synopsis by Cameron Bailey
