Guns and gangs are destroying black communities in America, we're told by Samuel L. Jackson's erstwhile chorus in this radically modern musical update of Aristophanes' 'Lysistrata'. The girlfriend (Teyonah Parris) of a Chicago gang leader (Nick Cannon) persuades a group of frustrated Illinois women to abstain from sex until their men agree to end the senseless cycle of violence. The director of 'Do the Right Thing' and 'She's Gotta Have It' is on top form with his explosive rally cry to curb the rising murder rate in American cities. ★★★★★ "The best film he’s made in a very long time" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★★ "Astonishing. Up there with Lee's very best" - Adam Woodword - Little White Lies
