“Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal wrote and star in this earnest and anguished comedic drama, set in Oakland and centered on black Americans’ mind-bending fear of prejudiced and trigger-happy police officers, but the movie’s substantial observations are dispersed in theatrics. Collin (Diggs), a black man in his last three days of probation nearly a year after his release from prison, and his best friend, Miles (Casal), who’s white, work together as furniture movers. Returning home at night, Collin witnesses a white police officer shooting an unarmed black man in the back. Meanwhile, Miles buys a gun, unbeknownst to his girlfriend, Ashley (Jasmine Cephas Jones), putting both his relationship and Collin’s freedom at risk. The gentrification of Oakland is a recurring theme, but the film pivots on Miles’s hotheaded behavior, for which Collin pays the price. Suggested ticket donation is $5. There is a $5.00 Parking Fee on all Sonoma State University lots.
