Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival
Chris Rock
Directed by Jeff Stilson
Written by Chris Rock, Jeff Stilson, Lance Crouther and Chuck Sklar
Produced by Nelson George
Chris Rock and Kevin O'Donnell

An exposé of comic proportions that only Chris Rock could pull off, GOOD HAIR visits beauty salons and hairstyling battles, scientific laboratories and Indian temples to explore the way hairstyles impact the activities, pocketbooks, sexual relationships, and self-esteem of the black community. Director Jeff Stilson follows Chris Rock on this raucous adventure prompted by Rock's daughter approaching him and asking, "Daddy, how come I don't have good hair?" Haircare professionals, beautyshop and barbershop patrons, as well as celebrities including Ice-T, Nia Long, Paul Mooney, Raven Symoné, Maya Angelou, Salt n Pepa, Eve and Reverend Al Sharpton all candidly offer their stories and observations to Rock while he struggles with the task of figuring out how to respond to his daughter's question.

GOOD HAIR marks a reunion of the team behind Rock's acclaimed and Emmy® Award winning HBO series The Chris Rock Show, including producer Nelson George, writer-director Jeff Stilson, writers Lance Crouther and Chuck Sklar. The film is produced by Chris Rock and Kevin O'Donnell.

GOOD HAIR will open in cinemas across the UK Friday 25th June 2010
