American History X is a drama film released in 1998, directed by Tony Kaye and starring Edward Norton and Edward Furlong. The film follows the story of Derek Vinyard, a former neo-Nazi skinhead who tries to prevent his younger brother, Danny, from going down the same path of hate and violence.

The film is set in Venice Beach, Los Angeles, and explores the themes of racism, violence, and redemption. Derek Vinyard, played by Edward Norton, is a former white supremacist who has just been released from prison after serving a three-year sentence for killing two black men who tried to steal his truck. In prison, Derek has a change of heart and realizes the error of his ways.

After his release, Derek tries to persuade his younger brother, Danny, played by Edward Furlong, who has been influenced by Derek’s past beliefs and associations, to turn away from the neo-Nazi movement. However, Derek’s efforts are complicated by the continued influence of their former white supremacist associates, as well as the deep-seated racial tensions that still exist in their community.

American History X is a powerful and thought-provoking film that tackles difficult and sensitive issues with honesty and insight. The performances of Norton and Furlong are particularly strong, and the film has received critical acclaim for its uncompromising approach to its subject matter.
