DRUMLINE . 2002. (PG-13) 118 min. Drama. A naturally talented hiphop drummer from Harlem , New York , receives a full music scholarship to Atlanta A&T University . Known for its dynamic marching band, musicians must earn a spot on line through a pledge routine that requires hard work, discipline, and a respect of authority. These are three qualities the drummer does not have.

Mounting school pressures and conflicting attitudes lead to his expulsion from the band, but he eventually gets over his selfishness and works for the good of the band.
