The Inkwell (Blu-ray)
Directed by Matty Rich
Jada Pinkett Smith
The Inkwell – it's a time and a place where cool clothes, hot music, sexy girls and good friends turn a dull family trip into the summertime vacation of a lifetime. Matty Rich (Straight out of Brooklyn) directed this critically acclaimed comedy-drama with an irresistible soundtrack featuring the music of legendary soul artists B.T. Express and Gladys Knight & The Pips. In 1976, Drew (Larenz Tate, Dead Presidents) is a teenager who has trouble dealing with life after he accidentally sets his house on fire. His parents Kenny (Joe Morton, Terminator 2) and Brenda (Suzzanne Douglas, Jason’s Lyric) decide to go to Martha’s Vineyard to spend the 4th of July weekend with family and friends. On Martha's Vineyard, Drew is thrown into an affluent, party-loving black society that congregates on a beach known as the Inkwell. Drew is now torn between two girls, the insufferably snooty Lauren (Jada Pinkett Smith, Collateral) and Heather (A.J. Johnson, House Party), a young woman married to a faithless louse. The stellar cast includes Morris Chestnut (Boyz n the Hood) and Duane Martin (Above the Rim).
