While trying to finish his year-long probation period, a black ex-convict witnesses a brutal police shooting. This incident begins to haunt him, ultimately forcing him to re-examine his relationship with his white best friend, a man who is known to be reckless and ill-tempered. A wildly entertaining story about the intersection of race and class, set against the backdrop of a rapidly gentrifying Oakland.

'Blindspotting encourages audiences to look beyond surface prejudices and really see their fellow citizens for the first time. If ever there was a film to open America's eyes, this is it' - Peter Debruge, Variety
