Do the Right Thing

Do the Right Thing

Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing is as powerful and relevant today as it was in 1989.

Combining humour, drama and unforgettable characters with Lee’s iconic visual style, the film traces the hottest day of the year on a block in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant.

This scorching 24-hour period that will change the lives of its residents forever, as the underlying hate and bigotry of the neighbourhood explodes into shattering violence.

Lee stars as Mookie alongside a powerhouse cast including Danny Aiello, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee, Giancarlo Esposito, Bill Nunn, John Turturro and Samuel L. Jackson.
