In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., Straight Outta Compton tells the astonishing story of how these youngsters revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.
Nominated for the Best Screenplay Oscar and winner of two Black Reel awards among many others. In English.
“As enlightening as it is entertaining, as sobering as it is exhilarating, Straight Outta Compton reminds viewers not only who N.W.A. were and what they meant, but also why they mattered – and still do.” Washington Post
“The NWA story is told in the style of a luxe, classic-era studio biopic. And it’s scintillating.” Little White Lies
