{"title":"Boyz N The Hood","dateDebut":"1991","dateEnd":null,"description":"John Singleton's portrayal of social problems in inner-city Los Angeles takes the form of a tale of three friends growing up together 'in the 'hood.' Half-brothers Doughboy and Ricky Baker are foils for each other's personality, presenting very different approaches to the tough lives they face. Ricky is the 'All-American' athlete, looking to win a football scholarship to USC and seeks salvation through sports, while 'Dough' succumbs to the violence, alcohol, and crime surrounding him in his environment, but maintains a strong sense of pride and code of honor. Between these two is their friend Tre, who is lucky to have a father, 'Furious' Styles, to teach him to have the strength of character to do what is right and to always take responsibility for his actions.","leadImageMedUrl":"http:\/\/distro-1.retrojunk.com\/secure\/b0fdd1a96427431533da1ee294a697f0a364d2bed3ce35820eb42c8d49be8e7532bf4a\/image\/678_0cc7d79d3b__25d3534a61.jpg"}
