#1 on Buzzfeed! “Simien’s feature debut is a sharp, hilarious, intelligent, fast-moving, Election-like examination of race on a fancy, mostly white college campus. I had high hopes for this movie, and they were all met. Exceeded, actually. The performances, especially Thompson’s and Williams’, were so nuanced and likable. I found myself trying to remember the movie’s jokes as I heard them, because they were so on-point and repeatable. Like this one: “Dear White People on Instagram: You own an iPhone and you go on hikes. We get it.” So funny! And sweet, and good-hearted. Also, I would argue that there’s never been a good movie about college? But now there is.” - Kate Aurthur
