Girls’ Trip (2017)

Directed by Malcolm D. Lee

Certification: 15

Runtime:122 minutes

Old college friends Ryan, Sasha, Lisa and Dina are in for the adventure of a lifetime when they reunite to attend the annual Essence Festival in New Orleans. Along the way, they rekindle their sisterhood and rediscover their adventurous side by doing enough dancing, drinking and romancing to make the Big Easy blush. With an all star cast including Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, Girls’ Trip became the star-making film for the hilarious comedienne Tiffany Haddish. This raucous comedy has an an undeniable energy but is also warm-hearted and questions social norms and the veneers of respectability.

This screening is part of NO B/S! A film season that is part of Comedy Genius, a national celebration of comedy onscreen, led by BFI, the Independent Cinema Office and BFI Film Audience network, supported by funds from the National Lottery. #BFIComedy
