Iconoclast director Spike Lee returns with this hard-hitting, modern day adaptation of the ancient Greek comedy "Lysistrata" that tells the story of a group of women who organize against the ongoing violence in Chicago's Southside, creating a movement that challenges the nature of race, sex, and violence around the world.

"★★★★! Finally, a picture that’s as current as tomorrow’s headlines...bursting with vitality and purpose. It has the feel of a movie made by a young man...yet it’s the work of a seasoned veteran who brings everything he’s learned over a long career to the picture." – Seattle Times
