From writer/director Rick Famuyiwa (The Wood, Brown Sugar) comes the critically acclaimed coming-of-age comedy Dope, available on Digital HD and DVD 28th December 2015, courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Rising stars Shameik Moore (Baz Luhrmann's The Get Down), Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel), and Kiersey Clemons (TV's Transparent) play a trio of self-professed high school geeks and bandmates growing up in the hood who find themselves caught up in an unexpected adventure that will forever change the rhythm of their lives in this smartly humorous film set to the tune of classic '90s hip-hop and featuring original songs by Pharrell Williams.

Executive produced by Williams, co-executive produced by Sean Combs (Notorious), and co-starring Zoë Kravitz (Divergent, Mad Max: Fury Road), Kimberly Elise (John Q, Diary of a Mad Black Woman), Victoria's Secret model Chanel Iman, Tyga, Blake Anderson (TV's Workaholics, Parks & Recreation), and A$AP Rocky, Dope first wowed audiences at the 2015 Sundance and Cannes Film Festivals. Now, audiences everywhere can experience the humour, heart, music and style of this fresh take on the high school comedy on DVD with awesome bonus features, including the Dope is Different featurette and a Music featurette.

Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is a brilliant geek who is obsessed with '90s hip-hop. He and his two best friends play in a punk band together and get hassled at high school for their throwback style. When illegal substances are hidden in his backpack at an underground dance club, his life gets extremely complicated. Malcolm will go to crazy lengths to achieve his dreams: getting into Harvard University, getting closer to his fantasy girl Nakia (Zoë Kravitz) and cashing in his fortune in bitcoins.

Dope was produced by Forest Whitaker (Fruitvale Station, Songs My Brothers Taught Me) and Nina Yang Bongiovi (Fruitvale Station, Songs My Brothers Taught Me). Executive producers are Pharrell Williams, Michael Y. Chow (Fruitvale Station, Songs My Brothers Taught Me), Rick Famuyiwa and David Lonner (TV's Devious Maids). Co-producers are Mimi Valdes, Caron Veazey, and David Grace (In a World...). Co-executive producer is Sean Combs (Notorious, Undefeated).
