    TAMBAY WHERE IS THIS POST, it is five days old.

    Red Hook Summer Movie Synopsis
    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.

    Starring: Clarke Peters, Jules Brown, Toni Lysaith, Nate Parker, James Ransone, Thomas Jefferson Byrd

    Does this mean they'll acknowledge Aaron McGruder one day?

  • Jmac | January 4, 2012 9:48 PM

    Leave Tyler alone. He paid for his fair and square.

  • Sergio | January 4, 2012 8:15 PM

    Don"t you think it should have been the other way around? Spike first then Tyler?

  • Sergio | January 4, 2012 3:42 PMReply
