This hip, high school remake of Othello
recasts our hero as a star basketball player (played by Mekhi Phifer) who is dating the dean's prize daughter (Julia Stiles) and is being subtly manipulated by a jealous "friend" (Josh Hartnett). It's directed by Tim Blake Nelson, the goofy little actor from O Brother, Where Art Thou?
, and it's quite a bit better than you'd think. 95 minutes
