Foyle Film Festival @ Rewire: Straight Outta Compton
Foyle Film Festival presents, in association with the Rewire Festival
In 1987, five young men, using brutally honest rhymes and hard-core beats, put their frustration and anger about life in the most dangerous place in America into the most powerful weapon they had - their music. STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON tells the true story of how these cultural rebels stood up to the authorities and formed the world's most dangerous group, N.W.A. And as they spoke the truth that no one had before and exposed life in the hood, their voice ignited a social revolution that still reverberates today.
Nominated for an Oscar®.
“The performances are excellent. F. Gary Gray directs with energy and respect.” - Angus Wolfe Murray, Eye For Film
