Product Details

Cooley--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. Cornbread--CORNBREAD tells the story of a quest for justice after Nathaniel "Cornbread" Hamilton, a popular neighborhood basketball player headed for a college scholarship, is gunned down by the police in a case of mistaken identity and then slandered as a criminal by the police to cover up their blunder. The central figure is 11-year-old Wilford (Laurence Fishburne), the cousin of Cornbread and the closest witness to the shooting.
