Double Feature: Cornbread, Earl and Me / Cooley High


Cornbread, Earl and Me

He had all the right moves to put the ball away... until the cops put him away - for good. UCLA all American and NBA Rookie Of The Year Keith Wilkes and Laurence Fishburne III (Hoodlum) give spectacular debut performances in the "touching...sensitive and gripping movie" that's guaranteed to take your emotions for a reckless ride. Wilkes is Cornbread, a promising high school basketballer who has what it takes to shoot himself right out of the ghetto...until two cops mistake him for a rapist and gun him down in cold blood. But when the police attempt to cover up their mistake, strong-arming the community into silence with threats of jail time and violence, it's up to Cornbread's 11 year old brother Wilford (Fishburne) and his pal Earl (Tierre Turner) to find the courage to speak the truth and clear Cornbread's name.

Cooley High

It's 1964. JFK has just been assassinated. Martha & The Vandellas, Little Stevie Wonder and The Four Tops rule the airwaves. And two high school students discover themselves and the taste of freedom for the first time. Preach (Glynn Turman), a serious-minded writer, and his best friend Cochise (Lawrence Hilton Jacobs), a basketball hero headed for college, are best friends at Cooley High. Together they cut classes to go to the zoo, crash parties, put the hustle on some hustlers and dream about getting out of their impoverished, rough neighborhood. But when an innocent joy ride makes them the targets of two vengeful hoods, their already uncertain futures seem even further out of reach. Featuring a Well-handled mix of comedy and drama with a soundtrack of Motown gold. Cooley High is the Best American comedy so far this year. (Village Voice)
