Spike Lee’s Red Hook Summer Get’s International Distributors
Spike Lee has gained two international distributors for his film Red Hook Summer according to the Chicago Tribune.
The movie builds upon Spike Lee’s Chronicles of Brooklyn film series. Other films in the series include She’s Gotta Have It, Do The Right Thing, He Got Game, Crooklyn, and Crockers.
In this installment, the story centers around a private-schooled Atlanta boy, Flik, who visits his grandfather, a Bishop, in the housing projects of Brooklyn for a summer.
The relationship between the young man and his grandfather develops with a rocky start. A summary from the Official Site says :
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.
Nate Parker (Red Tails), Clarke Peters, Jules Brown, Thomas Jefferson Brown, James Ransone (The Wire), De’Adre Aziza (Broadway), and Colman Domingo (Broadway) make up the experienced cast. Does the film sound like a winner?
