John David Washington as a private investigator in BlacKkKlansman

From visionary film-maker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It's the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington, son of renowned Academy Award winner Denzel Washingston) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organisation aims to sanitise its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. Produced by the team behind the Academy Award-winning Get Out, the film stars, Academy Award nominee Alec Baldwin is Dr Kennebrew Beauregard, John David Washington, Adam Driver and Brian Tarantina.
