Dope movie quotes tell the story of a high school student from Inglewood, California, whose life is temporarily knocked off course en route to Harvard. The comedy-drama was written and directed by Rick Famuyiwa. With Forest Whitaker, Pharrell Williams and Sean Combs among the producers, Dope opened in theaters on June 19, 2015.

In Dope, Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is a straight-A student in a portion of Inglewood, California, known as the Bottoms. He is applying to Harvard and for his application, he makes a video where he introduces himself along with his two closest friends, Jib (Tony Revolori) and Diggy (Kiersey Clemons), the three of which play in a punk band.

While Malcolm is focused on college and his love of 90s rap music, his life is temporarily derailed after a visit to a drug dealer's (A$AP Rocky) party to impress a girl (Zoe Kravitz) sends him and his friends (including Blake Anderson) on a journey to sell a backpack full of drugs. While the adventure is quite out of the ordinary for Malcolm and his geeky bunch, it will surely make a good story should he need something outrageous for his college application.

Dope opens alongside other great summer 2015 films including Inside Out, Jurassic World, Love & Mercy, and Entourage.
