Directed by Spike Lee | 1986

With Tracy Camilla Johns, Tommy Redmond Hicks, John Canada Terrell

“A mid-80s rival to Woody Allen, nearly equaling him in the psychological authenticity of his characters and perhaps bettering him in grace and virtuosity and sheer creative glee.”
—Chicago Reader

Shot in black and white, largely in Fort Greene, in just over two weeks, Spike Lee’s first feature tells the story of the young graphic artist Nola Darling and the boyfriends she does not want to choose among: straightlaced Jamie, preening Greer, and motor-mouthed Mars (played by Lee himself). For a while, Nola enjoys relationships with all three, but when the men give her an ultimatum the story turns darker. This watershed independent film of the 1980s was radical for its concern with a demographic hitherto unrepresented on screen: the cosmopolitan black female.
