Location: Bartos Screening Room

On August 26, see Idlewild and John Singleton’s Baby Boy in a special discount combination ticket!

Dir. Bryan Barber, 2006. 121 mins. With André 3000, Big Boi, Terrence Howard, Paula Patton, Cicely Tyson, Macy Gray, Patti LaBelle, Ving Rhames. Lifelong compatriots Rooster (Big Boi) and Percival Jenkins (André 3000) hatch a plan to save a Georgia nightclub called “The Church” from vengeful hustler Trumpy (Terrence Howard), who’s looking to bury the establishment and anyone who gets in his way. Set in the Depression-era South but springing from the history of prohibition-era juke joints during Reconstruction, Idlewild illustrates the blues heritage from which hip-hop emerged. There is perhaps no better outfit suited to illustrate that lineage than OutKast, Big Boi and André 3000’s trailblazing Atlanta-born rap duo known for their progressive blend of blues, funk, and electronic music.
