Spike Lee's "BlacKkKlansman" opens to critical acclaim.
"BlacKkKlansman", directed by Spike Lee (Do the Right Thing, Malcolm X), and starring Jasper Pääkkönen, has opened to critical acclaim in the United States.
Written by Charlie Wachtel, David Rabinowitz, Kevin Willmott and Lee, "BlacKkKlansman" is based on the 2014 memoir by Ron Stallworth, and follows the first African-American detective who sets out to infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The film also stars Adam Driver (Star Wars, Silence), John David Washington (The Book of Eli, Malcolm X), and Topher Grace (Spider-Man, Traffic).
It won the Grand Prix in Cannes in May, and also picked up the Audience Award in Locarno last week.
"BlacKkKlansman" has just been released in the United States, and will be in theatres in the UK from next week.
