In supposedly post-racial-America, the black students at the fictitious Ivy League Winchester University navigate the social and political implications of what it means to be black at an overwhelmingly white university, particularly on the heels of an incendiary ‘blackface’ party thrown by a group of white students. Satiric and poignant, the film is as funny as it is incisive and shows the complexities inherent in being a young person — of any color — in contemporary America. “This is the best film about college life in a long time, satiric or straight, comedy or drama.” (Chicago Tribune)
