Spike Lee’s seminal joint is back in a stunning new 4K digital restoration to mark 30 years since its release.

Nominated for two Academy Awards® including Best Original Screenplay, Do the Right Thing is set on one block of Brooklyn’s famed Bedford-Stuyvesant neighbourhood at the height of a sweltering summer in the late 1980s. 

A gripping and relevant tale of racial tension, Spike Lee plays Mookie, a delivery man who works for Sal (Danny Aiello), the long-standing owner of an Italian restaurant in a largely African-American neighbourhood. What starts as a spat in the restaurant soon escalates into a tragic event that touches the whole community. 

Despite being 30 years old, Lee’s film is as astute, funny, moving and thought-provoking as it was upon release, and features great performances across the board.
