Anger Grows Up And Becomes Revenge.

Legendary producer Norman Lear (All in the Family) and director Milos Forman (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest<, The People vs. Larry Flynt) team up with Academy Award-winning director Adam Davidson, to bring Jess Mowry's award-winning best-seller to the screen.

Way Past Cool is a coming-of-age story told in reverse - the gripping tale of a group of young black kids and their fight to reclaim their childhood.

The Friends, as they simply call themselves, are 12- and 13-year olds living on the ragged turf of "Oaktown," better known as Oakland, CA. When a powerful 16-year old drug dealer tries to set the group against their rivals in an attempt to overtake the neighborhood, they have no choice but to make the most difficult of decisions - and act as men. Moving and funny, lyrical and shocking, Way Past Cool will take you inside the minds of the most unlikely heroes.
