Will Dear White People be as successful in the theaters as it was at Sundance?

Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have acquired all U.S. and Canadian rights to “Dear White People,” which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.

Written and directed by Justin Simien, “Dear White People” follows the stories of four Black students at Winchester University, where a riot breaks out over a popular ‘African American’ themed party thrown by a White fraternity.
