Go See 'Red Hook Summer' - Spike Lee Takes Us Back to Brooklyn [TRAILER]
In August 2012, Spike Lee takes you back to Brooklyn with "Red Hook Summer," which opens on August 10th in limited release.
The latest in his Chronicles of Brooklyn anthology (which also include She's Gotta Have It, Do the Right Things, Crooklyn, Clockers, and He Got Game), 'Red Hook Summer" tells the story of Flik Royale (Jules Brown), a sullen young boy from middle-class Atlanta who has come to spend the summer with his deeply religious grandfather, Bishop Enoch Rouse (Clarke Peters, The Wire, Treme), in the housing projects of Red Hook.
Having never met before, things quickly get off on the wrong foot as Bishop Enoch relentlessly attempts to convert Flik into a follower of Jesus Christ. Between his grandfather's constant preaching and the culture shock of inner-city life, Flik's summer appears to be a total disaster--until he meets Chazz Morningstar (Toni Lysaith), a pretty girl his age, who shows Flik the brighter side of Brooklyn.
Through her love and the love of his grandfather, Flik begins to realize that the world is a lot bigger, and perhaps a lot better, than he'd ever imagined.Learn more about Red Hook Summer at Indie Wire
