Poetic Justice

Opens on November 22

Director: John Singleton Run Time: 109 min. Format: DCP Release Year: 1993

Starring: Janet Jackson, Joe Torry, Maya Angelou, Regina King, Tupac Shakur, Tyra Ferrell

In the wake of the success of Boyz n the Hood, John Singleton wanted to focus on African American women, so he cast Janet Jackson as Justice, an aspiring poet working as a hairdresser who finds herself on a roadtrip with the brash but charismatic Lucky (Shakur). The chemistry between Shakur and Jackson is undeniable and the scenes between the two of them are some of the best in their respective acting careers. Brattle Debut!
