We The Party is a revealing look at contemporary youth
culture. Writer-director Mario Van Peebles'We The Party
shows teenagers as they are, not as adults would like them to be. Set amidst the
latest trends in music, dance and fashion, We The Party is a colorful,
cutting-edge comedy set in an ethnically diverse Los Angeles high school during
America's first black president.
The film focuses on five friends as they deal with romance, money, prom, college,
sex, bullies, facebook, fitting in, standing out, and finding themselves. Evoking
such classic teen comedies as The Breakfast Club and House Party
but with an attitude and style all its own, We The Party captures the
hopes, confusion, challenges and dreams of today’s teenagers as they plunge
headlong into an uncertain future.
