Idlewild

Idlewild Opens Wide: Friday, August 25 Hey ya! We can't wait to see these two fools shake it, shake it, shake it like a Polaroid picture. Set during Prohibition, the OutKast boys are childhood pals who now run a hip speakeasy called "Church." These purveyors of potent potables also offer their dry community all the pimped-out entertainment they can handle. Percival (Andre "3000" Benjamin) is this fine establishment's bashful piano player, while the proud, strutting Rooster (Antwan "Big Boi" Patton) is the star attraction/manager for the joint. Naturally, the law and some greedy people -- one called Trumpy (Terrence Howard) -- give these boys a spot of trouble, but luckily, big name pals like Ben Vereen, Cicely Tyson, Patti LaBelle and Macy Gray lend a hand.
