BLACKKLANSMAN synopsis from James Cole Clay’s Review
“This true story of Colorado Springs detective Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), who infiltrates the Ku Klux Klan in 1978 using an over-the-phone “white voice” to gain access to their “secret” criminal underbelly. Stallworth is a sharp guy with ambition and an attitude to truly enact change within his world, yet he’s focused on doing his job to the best of his abilities. He partners with Jewish officer Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) to be the face that enters the den of the KKK, while Stallworth chats on the phone with Grand Wizard David Duke (Topher Grace).
While sneaking around the dumbling dunderheads of the KKK, Stallworth is assuming yet another identity as he is infiltrating a radical movement while attempting to woo Patrice Dumas (Laura Harrier), a woman who leads the local black student union. He’s a layered individual who goes against both systems, the radicals looking for a social change as well as the conservatism of his police force.”
