It's the height of summer and the hottest day of the year—a scorching 24-hour period that will change the lives of its residents forever. Over the course of a single day on one block of Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy Do or Die neighborhood, the easygoing interactions of a cast of unforgettable characters give way to heated confrontations as tensions rise along racial fault lines—ultimately exploding into violence. Punctuated by the anthemic refrain of Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power,” Do the Right Thing is a landmark in American cinema, as politically and emotionally charged and as relevant now as when it first hit the big screen. Restoration courtesy of the Criterion Collection. Contains mature content.
