Friday Foster

Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Based on the newspaper strip of the same name created by Jim Lawrence, Arthur Marks’ lively Friday Foster is the comic adaptation blaxploitation style. Queen of the genre, Pam Grier (Coffy, Foxy Brown), makes the most of the titular character, delivering a sparky, sassy performance and providing the film with a magnetic lynchpin. There’s highly entertaining support from a stellar cast including Yaphet Kotto, Carl Weathers, Eartha Kitt, and Scatman Crothers, and, obviously, a killer funk soundtrack from Luchi De Jesus.
