Story


A revealing look at contemporary youth culture, writer-director Mario Van Peebles' "We the Party" shows teenagers as they are, not as adults would like them to be. Set amidst the latest trends in music, dance and fashion, "We the Party" is a colorful, cutting-edge comedy set in an ethnically diverse Los Angeles high school during America's first black president. The film focuses on five friends as they deal with romance, money, prom, college, sex, bullies, facebook, fitting in, standing out, and finding themselves. Evoking such classic teen comedies as The Breakfast Club and House Party but with an attitude and style all its own, "We the Party" captures the hopes, confusion, challenges and dreams of today's teenagers as they plunge headlong into an uncertain future.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..lines like "Smart is the new gangsta" clash with the movie's reliance on teen movie stereotypes and a prank stolen right out of "Freaks and Geeks"..”
by Matt Pais [RedEye]
“..the script suffers from blandness and aimlessness..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..manic visual style featuring the sort of split-screen obsession that felt outdated decades ago..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
