Red Hook Summer - Spike Lee Joint

Got to try and pick up a bit more heat for the new Spike Lee Joint titled 
Not much is given away in this short trailer or on the website. But from some of the early reviews from the Sundace film festival, it would seem Spike is bringing us back to some of his classic late 80s/ early 90s work. 
I for one will surely be watching this in a picture house when it drops in August.


Red Hook Summer is the latest in Spike Lee’s Chronicles of Brooklyn (which also include SHE’S GOTTA HAVE IT, DO THE RIGHT THING, CROOKLYN, CLOCKERS, and HE GOT GAME), RED HOOK SUMMER tells the story of Flik Royale, a sullen young boy from middle-class Atlanta who has come to spend the summer with his deeply religious grandfather, Bishop Enoch Rouse, 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, 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. 

Loving bntl like a fat kid loves cake.
