New images for Spike Lee's Red Hook Summer

0

I haven't seen a ton of Spike Lee's movies, but I have a lot of respect for the dude. Spike Lee's newest movie Red Hook Summer focuses around a young boy from Atlanta, Georgia, named Flik, (yes really) who goes to spend the summer with his estranged grandfather Enoch, a firebrand preacher in Brooklyn, New York.

Check out below for some new stills for the movie, as well as the full synopsis.

The full synopsis for Red Hook Summer:

    When his mom deposits him at the Red Hook housing project in Brooklyn to spend the summer with the grandfather he’s never met, young Flik may as well have landed on Mars. Fresh from his cushy life in Atlanta, he’s bored and friendless, and his strict grandfather, Enoch, a firebrand preacher, is bent on getting him to accept Jesus Christ as his personal savior. Only Chazz, the feisty girl from church, provides a diversion from the drudgery. As hot summer simmers and Sunday mornings brim with Enoch’s operatic sermons, things turn anything but dull as people’s conflicting agendas collide.   

   Playfully ironic, heightened, yet grounded, Spike Lee’s bold new movie returns him to his roots, where lovable, larger-than-life characters form the tinderbox of a tight-knit community. A story about the coexistence of altruism and corruption, Red Hook Summer toys with expectations, seducing us with the promise of moral and spiritual transcendence. Spike is back in the ’hood.
