DEAR WHITE PEOPLE (R)   -Coming to BAXTER Friday, October 24
Dear White People is a sly, provocative satire of race relations in the age of Obama. The film follows four black students at Winchester University, where the unexpected election of activist Samantha White (Tessa Thompson) as head of a traditionally black residence hall sets up a college campus culture war that challenges conventional notions of what it means to be black. While Sam leverages her notoriety as host of the provocative and polarizing radio show "Dear White People" to try to prevent the college from diversifying Armstrong Parker House, outgoing head-of-house Troy (Brandon P. Bell) defies his father's lofty expectations by applying to join the staff of Pastiche, the college's influential humor magazine. Lionel (Tyler James Williams), an Afro-sporting sci-fi geek, is recruited by the otherwise all-white student newspaper to go undercover and write about black culture—a subject he knows little about—while the aggressively assimilated Coco (Teyonah Parris) tries to use the controversy on campus to carve out a career in reality TV. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, Dear White People explores racial identity in "post-racial" America while weaving a universal story of forging one's unique path in the world. Winner of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival's Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent.

Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent (Murray), a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper named Daka (Naomi Watts), Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine—the race track, a strip club and the local dive bar.
