Blindspotting

This ripped-from-the-headlines comedy-drama comes from hip-hop outsiders Rafael Casal and Daveed Diggs. Diggs made his mark rapping his way through the roles of Thomas Jefferson and Marquis de Lafayette in Hamilton. Here, he teams up with longtime pal Casal as Collin and Miles, a pair of black-and-white best friends working for a moving company in Oakland. When Collin (an ex-con just days away from ending his probation) witnesses the late-night police shooting of a young black man, he keeps his mouth shut. This leads to the film's messy, extended rumination on race, class, gertrification and justice—much of which, believe it or not, is delivered in spoken word verse. 95 minutes R.
