First released in 1991, Boyz N The Hood took the nation by storm, earning high praise from critics and moviegoers alike. The movie marked the directorial debut of award-winning filmmaker John Singleton (2Fast2Furious, Poetic Justice, Shaft) and ignited the acting careers of Ice Cube (Are We There Yet?, Friday), Oscar®- winner Cuba Gooding Jr. (Best Supporting Actor, Jerry McGuire 1997), Morris Chestnut (Ladder 49, Two Can Play That Game), Nia Long (Big Momma's House, Friday), Regina King (Jerry McGuire, Ray), Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix, Mystic River) and Angela Bassett (Waiting to Exhale, What's Love Got to Do With It).

In addition to receiving Oscar nominations for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay in 1991, Boyz N The Hood was honoured with the Bmi Film Music Award, the Chicago Film Critics Association Award for Most Promising Actor (Ice Cube), the MTV Movie Award for Best New Filmmaker (Singleton), the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best New Director (Singleton) and a Writers Guild of America nomination for Best Screenplay Written for the Screen (Singleton). It later received the 1993 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Motion Picture and, in 2002, Boyz N The Hood was selected by the National Film Preservation Board for exclusive entry into the historic National Film Registry.

Boyz N The Hood is the critically acclaimed story of three friends growing up in a South Central Los Angeles neighborhood and of street life where friendship, pain, danger and love combine to form reality. In South Central, harmony coexists with adversity, especially for three young men growing up there: Doughboy (Cube), an unambitious drug dealer; his brother Ricky (Chestnut), a college-bound teenage father; and Ricky's best friend Tre (Gooding, Jr.), who aspires to a brighter future beyond "The Hood". In a world where a trip to the store can end in death, the friends have diverse reactions to their bleak surroundings. Tre's resolve is strengthened by a strong father (Fishburne) who keeps him on the right track. But the lessons Tre learns are put to the ultimate test when tragedy strikes close to home and violence seems like the only recourse.
