I know we’re a long way from gender equality, but I’ve just seen encouraging signs that it is getting closer – at men’s fashion shows.

There’s More to Dope Than a 1990s Hip-Hop Fashion Flashback

There are three definitions given for the title at the beginning of Dope, and by the end, we’ve gone through them all.

This dope coming-of-age comedy is about dopes and dope dealers, but it’s also a heartfelt and perceptive examination of urban cultural trends with style and energy to spare.
