Set in the ’90s, ‘American Milkshake’ is a coming of age teen comedy starring Jolie (Tyler Ross), a white kid in a predominantly Black high school. Struggling with his identity, all he wants is to be accepted, and since he does not live in a tough neighborhood where he could gain “street-cred”, he decides to make his play at joining his school’s basketball team.
The 2013 Sundance pick is a light-hearted comedic tale covering race and stereotypes, along with teen issues. Press play up top to watch the trailer. What do you think about the premise?
