VIDEO: First Look - Netflix Presents Spike Lee-Directed One-Man Show RODNEY KING
Last month, Artists Repertory Theatre presented RODNEY KING, written and performed by acclaimed actor and performance artist Roger Guenveur Smith. Netflix will release the new film, directed by Spike Lee, starring Smith, on April 28. Check out the trailer below!
Smith unravels the myth of "the first reality TV star" in his riveting one-man performance. Rodney King tells the story of a flawed, good-hearted everyman - from his harsh entry into the national spotlight to a lonely death at the bottom of his swimming pool. It's been 25 years since the media turned the spotlight to Rodney King's treatment at the hands of four police officers, the subsequent acquittal that sparked angry riots in L.A. and opened eyes across the world. Now, Smith asks us once again, "Can we all get along?"
