About the Movie
ATL tells the story of four teens coming of age in a working class Atlanta neighborhood where hip-hop music and roller skating rule. As the group prepares for life after high school, challenges on and off the rink bring about turning points in each of their lives. The film is loosely based on mega music producer Dallas Austin and Grammy-winning R and B sensation Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins' (TLC) experiences growing up in Atlanta and hanging out at a local skating rink called Jellybeans.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Warner Bros.' low-budget stab at capturing an urban niche audience is higher on stylistic dazzle than originality or coherence, making it an unlikely candidate to bust out of the box office ghetto.
Fresh: The film's special appeal is that while the boys are poor and black, their stories transcend race and socio-economic matters.
Fresh: ATL is one of those filmic byproducts (in this case, a promotional vehicle for the rapper Tip Harris, a.k.a. T.I.) that somehow manage to emerge from the mill of commerce with their modesty preserved.
Fresh: It feels like a real window on the lives of disenfranchised youths -- these are in South Atlanta -- as they make their way in a society that doesn't cut them any breaks.
I love this movie. I have to watch it every time it comes on BET! And T.I looks soooo good!
