The trailer for Spike Lee’s upcoming drama, Red Hook Summer is out and judging from the clip, Lee is taking it back to his independent roots for his latest version of his “Brooklyn Chronicles.”
A middle-class boy from Atlanta finds his worldview changed as he spends the summer with his deeply religious grandfather in the housing projects of Red Hook, Brooklyn. As has been reported, the film received mixed reviews at its debut at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.
The film stars Clarke Peters (The Wire), Nate Parker (The Great Debaters and Red Tails) and introducing Jules Brown. Also, look for Lee to reprise his role as Mookie, the main character from his 1989 film Do the Right Thing. It will be his first time he has acted in one of his films since Summer of Sam.
Check out the trailer for film below.
