Boyz 'N' the Hood
Starring: Ice Cube, Cuba Gooding Jr,
Larry Fishburne, Morris Chestnut
Director: John Singleton
Boyz "N" the Hood is the critically acclaimed story about three Friends growing up
in a South Central Los Angeles neighborhood, and of street life where friendship,
pain, danger and love combine to form reality. "The Hood" is a place where drive-by
shootings and unemployment are rampant. But it is also a place where harmony co-exists
with adversity, especially for the three young men growing up there: Doughboy (Ice Cube),
an unambiguous drug dealer; his brother Ricky (Morris Chestnut), a college-bound teenage father;
and Ricky's best friend, Tre (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), who aspires to a brighter future beyond the "
The Hood." In a world where a trip to the store can end in death, the friends have diverse
reactions to their bleak surroundings. Tre's resolve is strengthened by a strong father
(Larry Fishburne) who keeps him on the right track. But the lessons Tre learns are put to
the ultimate test when tragedy strikes close to home, and violence seems like the only recourse.
This powerful portrait of black urban America is "a film of enormous relevance and importance".
