Director Spike Lee features an all-star cast in this modern-day adaptation of the ancient Greek play “Lysistrata” by Aristophanes. When Patti, an 11-yr old girl, is accidentally killed in a drive-by shooting, her grieving mother pleads with anyone who witnessed the crime to come forward. But no one is willing to identify the killer. Shaken by Patti’s death and escalating bloodshed, Lysistrata persuades Spartan and Trojan women to swear off sex with their men until the fighting stops – and inspires other women to join the boycott.
This sprawling, blistering state-of-the-reunion-address is Spike Lee’s most vital movie in years.” – Variety
