Director Spike lee is back on top form with this funny but deadly serious true story. It’s the early 1970s. Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) becomes the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs police department and, in an attempt to make his mark, sets out to expose the local branch of the Ku Klux Klan. He recruits his Jewish colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) to go undercover and, together, take down the organisation as it attempts to sanitise its racist and hate-filled rhetoric.
