Spike Lee Finances His Latest Movie “Red Hook Summer” [Movie Trailer]
Spike Lee is always hard at work and cooking up something. Red Hook Summer, his latest release, in my opinion will tell a story that I wish Tyler Perry would tell in some of his movies. The trailer looks interesting enough for me to check it out, and I like the storyline. I read a few negative comments on the Youtube channel about the quality of the movie and the acting skills. While I’m not saying that it’s top notch production, I still respect this guy and most of the work he puts out. Here’s a little more info about the movie below:
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), 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.
