Wondering why times are missing?


The life of a black nerd (or "blerd," as the kids say) in a tough LA neighborhood threatens to change when he gets mixed up with a cornrowed beauty, an underground party and $100,000 worth of stolen drugs. Rick Famuyiwa (The Wood, Brown Sugar, Our Family Wedding) writes and directs this stylish flashback comedy, which has as much in common with the films of John Hughes as it does with the hip-hop exploitation flicks of the early '90s. 103 minutes
