Movie Description

The following content was provided by the publisher.

"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 ("The Matrix") give spectacular debut performances in this "touching...sensitive and gripping movie" (Cue) that's "guaranteed to take your emotions for a reckless ride" (L.A. Herald-Examiner)! Step into the court with "Cornbread, Earl And Me"... you'll be glad you did. Wilkes is "Cornbread," a promising highschool 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": Often called "the black 'American Graffiti'" - but with "far more vitality and variety" (The New York Times), "Cooley High" takes a nostalgic, poignant - and hilariously funny - look at black teen life in 1960's Chicago. 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 Truman), 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" (Blockbuster Entertainment Guide) and a "universal appeal" (Los Angeles Times), "Cooley High" is the best American comedy so far this year (Village Voice).

"Cornbread, Earl & Me" is presented in Widescreen Format; "Cooley High" is presented in Full Frame Format.
