Summary, etc.: Academy Award-winning actor Denzel Washington gives a riveting performance in Spike Lee's breathtaking film on music and love. Talented trumpeter Bleek Gilliam (Denzel Washington) is obsessed by his music and indecisiveness about his girlfriends, Indigo (Joie Lee) and Clarke (Cynda Williams). But when he is forced to come to the aid of his manager and childhood friend (Spike Lee), Bleek finds his world more fragile than he ever imagined. Stunning cinematography, a rousing score and superlative performances come together in this unforgettable feast for the senses.
